LAUSD changing sexual misconduct alert protocol
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The Los Angeles Unified School District is making big changes in alerting parents about alleged sexual misconduct.
According to a new policy, which was announced Thursday, parents will be notified within 72 hours if a teacher is removed from the classroom because of sexual misconduct allegations.
The district said it will extend the policy to teacher's aides, volunteers, coaches and custodial staff by the fall.
Deasy said the goal of the new policy is to strike a balance between letting law enforcement conduct investigations in a bias-free environment and notifying parents and guardians within a reasonable time frame.
