Boundaries - Student/Staff Interaction Policy
We have finalized the first part of our year-long emphasis on the reduction and elimination of sexual abuse cases in our member schools. We urge you to adopt these interaction guidelines as quickly as possible. The new interaction guidelines will require internal discussion and training with your staff and we will offer help toward achieving that goal.
Please note that effective July 1, 2018, schools are required (under Ed Code Section 44050) to provide a written copy of their student interaction policy to parents/guardians. If you have a website, you are permitted to post it there for viewing.
The Student/Staff Interaction Policy is designed to replace language that may currently be contained in your Employee Handbook. Yes, it is quite detailed and explicit, but we believe it is absolutely necessary.
