Sexual Harassment: Is It? Or Isn’t It?

 

 

 

 

 

 

The #MeToo Movement and trending news continues to increase awareness of sexual misconduct in the workplace.  One of AccuTrain’s most popular video-based courses, Sexual Harassment in Schools (15 minutes; online or DVD) clarifies some of the misunderstandings and ambiguities regarding sexual harassment in the K-12 environment.   See if you can pass the quiz.

  • Schools face more potential scrutiny than business because sexual harassment is prohibited by both the Civil Rights Act and Title IX.  True or False?
  • A student making a sexual advance toward a teacher is inappropriate — but not sexual harassment.  True or False?
  • A student making a crude sexual advance toward another student is unacceptable, but doesn’t qualify as sexual harassment — since only employees are protected.  True or False?
  • To be considered sexual harassment requires a pattern.  An isolated incident would not be considered sexual harassment.  True or False?
  • Reporting potential sexual harassment to the proper authorities for investigation is the only thing an administrator really needs to do.   True or False?
  • Schools receiving federal funds can be held accountable for sexual harassment claims if they do not provide training to all employees.  True or False?

QUIZ ANSWERS:

  •  Schools face more potential scrutiny than business because sexual harassment is prohibited by both the Civil Rights Act and Title IX.
    True.  And whereas Title VII of the Civil Rights Act only covers employees, Title IX also protects students.
  • A student making a sexual advance toward a teacher is inappropriate — but not sexual harassment.  False.  While not as common, unwanted sexual advances by students can be considered harassment?
  • A student making a crude sexual advance toward another student is unacceptable, but doesn’t qualify as sexual harassment — since only employees are protected.  False.  Title IX also protects students.
  • To be considered sexual harassment requires a pattern.  An isolated incident would not be considered sexual harassment.   False.  A single incident can create a hostile environment.
  • Reporting potential sexual harassment to the proper authorities for investigation is the only thing an administrator really needs to do.   False.  The school may need to take interim measures during an investigation.  It is the school’s responsibility to keep alleged victims informed of the status of the investigation.  Title IX also protects students from retaliation.
  • Schools receiving federal funds can be held accountable for sexual harassment claims if they do not provide training to all employees.  True.
