Sexual Assault in the K-12 Schools: Prevention and Response

The Association of the Bar of the City of New York
42 West 44th St., New York, NY 10036 
6 - 8 pm

Free to attend, registration required.

With recent attention focused at the state and federal level on combating sexual assault at universities, questions persist as to whether enough is being done at the K-12 level to increase awareness of this issue, and provide early intervention. What procedures exist for reporting assault in K-12? How does mandatory reporting impact school response? What training do staff and supervisors receive regarding sexual assault in schools? What training should they receive? Lastly, what can be learned from the university-level experience that might help guide best practices in K-12 schools? Join this expert panel, which aims to educate on the existing policies and protocols in place at the federal, state, and local level.
