Sex Abuse Policies & Litigation: What Every Superintendent Needs To Know

Across the nation, and here in Delaware, child abuse is in the news, and on school administrators' minds. In this seminar, you'll learn strategies from expert litigators in the field to minimize your district's potential liability. The program will cover abuse prevention and reporting, crafting policies and procedures, conducting internal investigations, terminating or disciplining staff, and the steps you can take to prevail in civil litigation if one of your employees is charged. In addition, we'll review examples drawn from cases to illustrate costly mistakes that you can avoid. You'll leave with a clear understanding of the legal standards governing claims against public school districts, and the steps you can take as a superintendent to protect your students, and your district.

The event will be taking place at Lake Forest School District's administrative offices (located at 5423 Killens Pond Road, Felton) from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
