Trouble With Title IX Reform ACLU Now Opposes Students Having Rights

USDOE

 

On Friday, the American Civil Liberties Union came out against the Title IX reforms proposed by the Department of Education, led by Betsy Devos. Those reforms are based on preserving the rights of the accused while still protecting accusers in sexual assault cases – but the ACLU, caving to the woke Left, has decided that it is no longer worthwhile to protect such accused people. Civil liberties go by the wayside when it comes to sexual assault, apparently.

SCHOOL CRIME ALERT – Florida middle school girls plotted to kill up to 15 students, drink their blood

Bartow Middle School Florida

Two middle school students in Florida were arrested Tuesday after they concocted a “plot to kill students” via a variety of weapons, including a pizza cutter, police said.

The girls — ages 11 and 12 years old — “wanted to kill at least 15 people,” Bartown Police Chief Joe Hall said at a news conference Wednesday. The two “were waiting in the bathroom for (an) opportunity to find smaller kids that they could overpower to be their victims.”

Both girls were searched in a Bartow Middle School office, where a butcher knife was located on one of the students. Knives, scissors and a pizza cutter were also found, according to Fox 13.

Brick Township PD & School District Use of SERAPH Program Leads to $469,281 Federal Grant

Brick NJ

 

In May the Brick Township Police Department and Brick Township School District partnered with national school safety firm SERAPH to provide training for a School Safety and Special Education assessment. This program led to the Township securing a federal School Violence Prevention Program grant in the amount of $469,281.

The SCHOOL SECURITY MANAGEMENT AUDIT – SCHOOL SAFETY ASSESSMENT CERTIFICATION PROGRAM provides school officials with training in the planning and execution of a Federal level [U.S. Department of Education] audit of special education, school security equipment, management systems and polices as they relate to the proper management of a safe school environment.

“The program is unique because it allows a school and local police department to learn how a correct audit is to be performed,” states SERAPH CEO Dale Yeager.

School Safety Failure in New Jersey Schools

NJSBA

 

Over the past 18 years we have worked with hundreds of LEAs in NJ. During that period of time we have observed a failure of New Jersey school administrators and school board members to address the New Jersey Department of Education – NJDOE mandates for School Safety and Security. 

In many cases these schools have been told by their legal counsel that they are compliant and yet when we audit these same schools they are not.

If NJ schools are to be safe they must comply.

steps to provide increased flexibility in the use of consumer signal boosters and proposed
additional actions to further enhance the usefulness and effectiveness of these boosters.
