DCPS is committed to ensuring that every student feels loved, challenged, and prepared to positively influence society and thrive in life. At DCPS, we are committed to educating the whole child by providing rigorous, joyful, and inclusive academic and social emotional learning experiences to ensure all students are college and career ready. As part of this commitment, DCPS works to create a safe and secure learning environment that supports the whole child and ensures that every student has access to joyful and rigorous academic experiences. 

This policy conveys DCPS requirements regarding the prevention of student sexual abuse by staff, as informed by applicable law, including the School Safety Omnibus Amendment Act of 2018. It describes staff training and conduct requirements, responding to allegations, public awareness and parent training, resources and information for affected students and families, and other prohibited actions.
