Can a School Be Liable For Sexual Assualt by a School Employee?

Attorney contributor Aaron Blank is an experienced school sex abuse attorney. He represents victims and their families in private civil lawsuits. Aaron recently discussed how a high school could be held liable for sexual assault by an employee.

"All schools should prioritize student safety on their campus. This includes implementing protections against sexual assault by other classmates and school employees. Too often lately, we see reports of school employees being accused of sexually abusing students. Sadly, some of these occurrences could have been prevented if the school had an adequate safety plan in place. This plan could include video monitoring systems across the campus and by conducting extensive background checks on all staff."

"When victims file a police report, they help bring criminal charges against the perpetrator, but an investigation into the school's safety is also a crucial step to justice. In many cases, the abuse could have been avoided by actions taken by the school. This may include looking into prior reports of misconduct and taking notice of special treatment given to the victim. Victims, along with their parents, may have grounds to pursue a civil lawsuit against the school district if such preventatives were neglected. Families of victims sexually abused by a high school employee should discuss their legal options with an experienced school sex abuse attorney. In cases of school safety negligence, victims may be awarded financial compensation."
