Washington Mathematics Science and Technology Public Charter School (DC): In July 2013, OCR resolved a complaint in which a parent alleged that the school failed to respond promptly and appropriately to complaints of peer sexual harassment regarding her son, a high school student. Under the terms of the agreement, the school agreed to provide interim measures to protect the student, including ensuring that the student and alleged harasser remained separate and providing daily check-ins with the student to help make sure that he felt comfortable while the school thoroughly investigated the incident. More broadly, the school agreed to undertake systemic changes, including issuance and dissemination of a statement that the school does not tolerate sexual harassment, training for staff on sexual harassment and gender-based harassment, and age-appropriate student education on sexual harassment and nonconformity with gender stereotypes.
