The National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) and The Association of Boarding Schools (TABS) partnered in the summer of 2016 to form the Independent School Task Force on Educator Sexual Misconduct.
The goal of the Task Force was to contribute to a broader understanding of educator sexual misconduct in independent schools and to identify specific strategies that independent schools can take to prevent and respond to misconduct effectively.
The Task Force recently released a draft of their report for comment. To read the draft, please click here.
McLane Middleton attorney David Wolowitz was a consultant to the Task Force and one of the group’s “expert” reviewers.
David advises independent schools and colleges on all aspects of risk avoidance and crisis response. He is able to offer clients advice based on his years of substantial and varied experience in key legal areas that impact schools, including employment, mental health, contract, criminal, fiduciary and tort law.
David is a pioneer in applying behavioral risk management concepts to promote healthy school cultures. He acts as general counsel to many independent schools in Massachusetts and New Hampshire and is a consultant for schools nationwide and overseas.
