Midwest Center for Safe Schools proposes a Bullying – Sexual Harassment – Title IX Compliance education program that targets a wide group of individuals, including students, teachers, and staff operating within the school environment, and parents and the greater community operating outside the school environment.

The proposed program provides training to school staff, educates students regarding
bullying – sexual harassment and its dangers, and addresses the community to raise
awareness and gain support for anti-bullying/sexual harassment school policies. It
is important to educate and engage all of the groups involved with bullying/sexual
harassment activities, including bullies, victims, targets, their peers, and adults.
Presenters will discuss the verbal and nonverbal, direct, indirect, physical, and
emotional expressions of bullying – sexual harassment, the legal ramifications of these
behaviors, and technological (cyber bullying) and other vehicles for these behaviors.
