PublicSchoolWORKS is pleased to introduce its newest course release, “Discriminatory Harassment – Identification and Response”, as part of its library of more than 500 school-focused courses.
Some student misconduct may qualify as peer discriminatory harassment under one or more of the federal anti-discrimination laws enforced by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights. With that in mind, PublicSchoolWORKS has produced a new course that addresses this Title 6 topic. While there is no training requirement yet, it is a high profile and potential high liability topic for schools.
The “Discriminatory Harassment – Identification and Response” course defines student-to-student (peer) discrimination based on race, sex, color, national origin and religion. The course also mentions LGBT, how peer discrimination is different from bullying, and how school employees should respond and intervene. The course teaches educators how to recognize and respond to student-to-student discriminatory harassment and outlines important legal requirements and considerations for districts. Lastly, the course includes online resources for districts.
