Staff-to-Student Sexual Misconduct: While the vast number of school staff members are competent, capable and caring professionals, sexual misconduct by staff members involving students unfortunately does happen. Sexual misconduct has a profound and lasting impact on the student, school, community and staff members as well. In this course, you'll learn about the obligation of every staff member to provide an appropriate level of care for all students. Specifically, this 37-minute online SafeSchools course will explore the definition of sexual misconduct, the legal obligations of school staff members, signs of sexual misconduct by staff members and how to create clear professional boundaries that protect you as well as students. The content in this course was designed with care and sensitivity; however, some may find certain topics personally upsetting, especially for survivors of sexual abuse or assault. If you need to talk with someone, contact your administrator or a related resource in your community. (All staff training)
