“Like colleges and universities, K-12 school districts must comply with legal obligations under Title IX to respond to allegations of sexual assault.”Title IX, the 1972 federal gender equity law, requires school officials to investigate allegations of sexual assaults involving students or staff regardless of police involvement.They must provide resources and accommodations to sexual assault victims and ensure equity in any discipline.Sexual misconduct is a broad term encompassing any unwelcome behavior of a sexual nature that is committed without consent or by force, intimidation, threats, coercion, or manipulation.According to our research of Iowa and other state lists there was 1 registered sex offender living in Newell as of August 27, 2017.All Iowa districts are required by state law to have, at the very least, boilerplate policies addressing bullying and sexual harassment.But many lack guidelines for students and staff that clearly address sexual misconduct and violence, although the Obama administration reminded districts again last month that they are required to do so under federal law.“When the trauma of sexual assault is not addressed, it can have a devastating effect on a girl’s physical and mental health, leading to serious problems in school,” the White House said in a statement.Here's where you can meet singles in Waverly, Iowa.
Assistance in reporting any form of misconduct to the proper law enforcement authorities is available to any student upon request from a certified victim advocate at the Rape Victim Advocacy Program (RVAP), the Domestic Violence Intervention Program (DVIP), or from the Office of the Sexual Misconduct Response Coordinator.
