    Training to Prevent and Respond to Sexual Harassment

    Preventing sexual harassment must be an ongoing priority. All school staff should receive training to help them identify and respond appropriately to sexual harassment and to understand their role in creating supportive and respectful school environments. Training that occurs over time and across settings and includes the entire faculty, staff, and all admin- istrative personnel will be more effective than a one- time session. For students, classes covering civil rights, diversity, or tolerance can include the topic of sexual harass- ment and provide opportunities for ongoing discussion about respectful behavior. In addition to integrating this topic with existing coursework, specific materials about sexual harassment should be available for classroom use. Although a short video about sexual harassment may be appropriate to start a discussion, a video in isolation is not as effective as a discussion about changing student attitudes and behavior. Students prefer to talk with adults and peers about their observations, feelings, and experiences. Materials to assist with classroom and school-wide training on sexual harassment are listed in the Recommended Resources.
