Districts and schools are legally mandated to protect students from sexual harassment. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title 20 U.S.C. §1681 et. seq.) and California Education Codes 200, 212.6, 48900.2 describe the prohibited school-related conduct. The Sexual Harassment Training modules for Supervisors, Staff and Students provide an understanding of the legal requirements and use current real-world situations to help educators and students identify sexually harassing behaviors and implement effective intervention and prevention strategies.
