Sexual Assault, Sexual Harassment and Unsafe Relationships: Information and Resources for Students

These resources were developed in collaboration with students at McNary and Sprague High School.

Have you experienced sexual assault, sexual harassment, sex trafficking or an unsafe relationship? Are you concerned about a friend who has experienced abuse?

You are not alone. 

School staff are here to support you. We encourage you to talk with a school administrator, school counselor, school social worker, or another trusted adult.

Here to listen

Most importantly, we are here to listen and support you. The school administrator, counselor or social worker will talk with you about your safety and your needs. You will have immediate resources so that you can feel safe in the community and at school.

Here to support

Staff will meet with you to discuss your needs related to the educational environment and how we can support you at school and in school-related activities.

Here to discuss

If the concern occurred at school or may have an impact on the educational environment then it likely violates school district policy and needs to be investigated. The school administrator will talk with you about the steps they will take to investigate and support you during the process.

Here to inform

All school employees are mandatory reporters and may need to make a report to law enforcement or the Oregon Department of Human Services depending on the situation. Please talk with a school employee if you have any questions or concerns about mandatory reporting.

Here to protect

District policy protects students who report safety concerns in good faith. This means that you will not be disciplined for reporting sexual harassment, sexual assault, sex trafficking or relationship abuse, even if during the course of the incident you engaged in something that would otherwise be considered against school policy (such as consuming drugs or alcohol). This is to ensure that students can report without fear of consequences or retaliation for doing so.
