Description: In the past, sexual harassment was generally viewed as an individual, personal problem rather than an institutional one. But recent court decisions and expensive out-of-court settlements have brought home the realization that sexual harassment in the schools is a problem that must be dealt with at the school district level - before it ends up in the courts. Administrators and educators at all levels, working to create a harassment-free educational environment will appreciate this informative and practical handbook. Combining the expertise of an educational law specialist and an elementary school principal, it defines the problem, provides important background information, reviews the legal issues, and offers a specific plan for implementing a sexual harassment prevention program at the building level or in a school district. It also includes a detailed curriculum guide and specific class activities for all grade levels. How Serious Is the Problem? Unfortunately, some educators still think sexual harassment is not a real problem for their students. To counter this view, the authors include information from recent surveys in which 4 out of 5 students reported that they have been the target of some form of sexual harassment during their school lives. Of those students, one in four reported being targeted "often". These victims often feel helpless and hopeless; many carefully plan their activities in order to avoid their harassers. Surprisingly, much of the harassment students experience is initiated by other students - in high school, junior high, and middle schools, even in elementary schools (including the lower grades). That's why the authors believe it's critically important for everyschool district to have a formal plan for eradicating sexual harassment. To help educators develop a comprehensive plan, the authors provide helpful guidelines for creating a written policy prohibiting all forms of sexual harassment; identifying unacceptable behavior; publicizing the policy and emphasizing that serious consequences will result if such behavior occurs; and introducing educational programs on sexual harassment for students, parents, faculty, and staff. They describe two successful prevention programs - a district-wide program in Minnesota and a building-level program in Nebraska. And they offer sample policies, letters, and guidelines for conducting investigation, including suggestions for interviewing the alleged harasser, victim, and witnesses. Curriculum guides for grades K-3, 4-6, and 7-12 provide age-appropriate activities designed to help children recognize and appreciate individual differences, accept responsibility for their behavior, and recognize and avoid sexual harassment.
