NOTICE OF AVAILABILITY OF ANNUAL SECURITY REPORT

The Federal Student Right to Know, Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act, now cited as the “Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act” and herein identified as the “Clery Report”, requires institutions of higher education to annually prepare and publish a report concerning campus crime statistics and security policies. The report is distributed through appropriate publications, mailings, or computer networks to all current students and employees, as well as to all prospective students upon request. The report contains annual specific campus crime and arrest statistics, campus policies and practices intended to promote crime awareness, campus safety and security.

GENERAL INFORMATION

  1. This institution does not employ campus security personnel but encourages both its employees and students to immediately report suspected criminal activity or other emergencies to the institutional official and/or in the event of emergency to directly contact local law enforcement or other emergency response agencies by dialing (911).

  1. All students and employees are required to report any crime or emergency to an institutional official promptly. If a student or employee wished to report a crime on anonymous or confidential basis, the institutional official will be prepared to record and report the crime, but not the name of the informant. The student or employee may, in order to maintain confidentiality, submit the information in writing to his/her institutional official without signature. If the student wishes not to maintain confidentiality, the student will contact his/her teacher or school official who in turn will contact the nearest supervisor to report criminal actions or emergencies to the appropriate agency by calling (911).

Information for the Annual Disclosure of Crime Statistics report is obtained by the institution’s Administrator who contacts the correct police department District for statistics and the institution’s “Daily Incident Log”, and then records those statistics.

  1. Current policies concerning campus law enforcement are as follows:

a.) Institution’s officials have no powers of arrest other than the Citizens Arrest Law and are required in the event of a crime or emergency to call the correct agency or dial (911) for the police and emergency services. The Citizens Arrest Law will be invoked only as a last resort, and after all other possibilities have been explored.

b.) Employees shall contact their immediate or nearest ranking supervisor to report any criminal action or emergency to the appropriate agency by calling (911). If possible, in the interim, institutional official shall attempt to non-violently deal with the crime or emergency with the appropriate agency on campus. Individual discretion must be used, as undue risk should not be taken.

c.) The institution may refer students to a professional source such as a pastoral or professional counseling services (mental health or otherwise). The student or employee is encouraged to seek such aid.

  1. This institution offers annual crime awareness/prevention programs, safety awareness programs, self-defense programs, drug and alcohol abuse/awareness programs, dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assaults and stalking and active shooter situation awareness and prevention annually. Students are encouraged to exercise awareness for their own personal safety and the safety of others. The following is a description of policies, rules and programs designed to inform students and employees about the prevention of crimes on campus.
  1. Do not leave personal property in classrooms.

b.) Report to an institutional official, any suspicious persons.

c.) Always try to walk in groups outside the school premises.

g.) The school  recommends students visit:  http://parkerpd.org/487/Community-OutreachCrime-Prevention to educate themselves on crime awareness.  New students will be introduced to this website at orientation so that they are aware of this information. All information is available on request.

h.) Information regarding any crimes committed on the campus will be available and posted in a conspicuous place within two (2) business days after the reporting of the crime and be available for sixty (60) business days during normal business hours, unless the disclosure is prohibited by law, would jeopardize the confidentiality of the victim or an ongoing criminal investigation, the safety of an individual, cause a suspect to flee or evade detection or result in the destruction of evidence. Once the reason for the lack of disclosure is no longer in force, the institution must disclose the information. If there is a request for information that is older than sixty (60) days, that information must be made available within two (2) business days of the request.

  1. The institution offers annual crime awareness or prevention programs with the Parker Police Department annually. The institution’s policies and regulations are disclosed appropriately to all new and prospective students.
  2. All incidents shall be recorded in the institution’s Daily Incident Log located on campus in the administrative office of the school director. The log includes the date, time, location, incident reported, and disposition of incident and the name of the person who took the report. The report must be entered in the log with two (2) business days after it is reported to the school’s official, unless that disclosure is prohibited by law or would endanger the confidentiality of the victim.
  3. This institution does not permit the sale, possession, or consumption of alcoholic beverages on school property. The institution adheres to and enforces all state underage-drinking laws.
  4. The institution does not permit the possession, use or sale of illegal drugs by its employees and students. The institution adheres to and enforces all state and Federal drug laws. Violation of these policies by students or employees may result in expulsion, termination and/or arrest.

Students and employees should refer to the following person or agency when reporting or seeking help on a criminal incident. Please note that for any emergency that requires immediate attention, the persons involved should not wait to report to the school’s director but rather contact the appropriate agency by calling (911).

EMERGENCY PROCEDURES

Who to Contact

All employees are expected to be familiar with and to follow procedures outlined in the Stacey James Institute Handbook. In the case of an emergency or immediate or perceived threat toward the students and/or employees, or immediate or perceived threat toward any other person on the school premises, the employee is authorized to make an emergency call to 911.

Instructors (including student instructors) and/or staff members should remain in the room with their students if they are notified of a possible emergency. As soon as a reasonably possible, the Administration/Director should be notified of the threat.

Medical Attention

Anything requiring more than minor attention is to be referred to the local hospital. Except in cases of severe illness or medical emergencies, students are considered mature enough to seek appropriate relief such as returning home, visiting the restroom, or seeking medical help.

PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR SAFETY

No safety rule is a complete substitute for common sense, nor can safety rules be devised to cover every situation you experience. For these reasons, good judgment must be used in every situation. Each person is responsible for the following:

Individual Responsibility

Follow the approved practices and procedures or standards which apply to any work you perform for the school.

Use only the appropriate protective equipment and devices. Use such equipment or devices whenever the hazard justifies their use or when so instructed by your supervisor.

It is the responsibility of everyone to make frequent inspections of tools and other equipment used to make sure such tools and equipment are in good physical condition.

Report to your Supervisor/Instructor any condition which might injure any person or damage any property. The hazard should also be pointed out to others exposed to it in order to correct or avoid it before an accident occurs.

Any injury which occurs at school, no matter how slight, or, any accident that causes damage to property shall be reported immediately to the School Director. All injuries and accidents should be reported to the Supervisor/ Instructor by the end of the day.

If anyone observes another who is about to endanger themselves, another person or property while at the school, they should intervene immediately but in such a way as to not endanger themselves.

Alcoholic beverages are not allowed on the school property and use of such is prohibited. No one is to report for work or class evidencing any effects of alcoholic consumption.

Controlled substances, such as marijuana and cocaine, are illegal by state and federal law. Their use and possession are prohibited on school property.

Liquids such as water or oil, excessive dust/dirt, or any other debris spilled on floors represent serious slipping hazards and should be cleaned up immediately upon observation.

Accident Investigation and Reporting

Anyone who suffers an injury during school shall promptly report such injury to the Supervisor/ Instructor no later than the end of the period on the day in which the injury occurred.

Every accident shall be investigated to determine the cause and the steps needed to prevent a reoccurrence. It shall be the responsibility of the Supervisor/Instructor to obtain the complete and detailed facts of the accident as soon as possible after it occurs and to see that the required reports are made to the Administration/Director.

Firearms

Firearms, ammunition, explosives or other weapons are prohibited on the school property. Exceptions to this policy are limited to the following instances:

Violence Against Women  (VAWA) – Definitions of:

On March 7,2013 President Obama signed the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 (VAWA) (Pub.Law 113-4). The HEA defines the new crime categories of domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking in accordance with section 40002 (a) of the Violence Against Women Act of 1994 as follows:

Domestic Violence is defined as abuse committed against an adult or a minor who is

a spouse or former spouse, cohabitant or former cohabitant, or someone with whom the abuser has a child, has an existing dating or engagement relationship, or has had a former dating or engagement relationship.

Dating Violence is defined as abuse committed by a person who is or has been in a social relationship of a romantic or intimate nature with the victim.

Stalking is behavior in which a person repeatedly engages in conduct directed at a specific person that places that person in reasonable fear for his or her safety, the safety of others or substantial emotional distress.

Sexual Harassment is defined as unwelcome sexual advances, towards anyone (no matter what gender) requests for sexual favors and other verbal, nonverbal, or physical conduct of a sexual nature. Sexual harassment is conduct that explicitly or implicitly affects a person’s employment or education or interferes with a person’s work or educational performance or creates an environment such that a reasonable person would find the conduct intimidating, hostile, or offensive. Sexual harassment includes sexual violence (see definition below). Stacey James Institute will respond to reports of any such conduct in accordance with District Policy on Sexual Harassment.

a. Unwanted sexual misconduct which may lead to a complaint of sexual harassment:

• Electronically recording,  photographing,  or  transmitting  intimate  or sexual utterances, sounds or images of another person

• Falsifying a posting on an electronic site involving sex or sexual activity

Sexual Assaults  

Rape is an act of sexual intercourse accomplished against a person’s will by means of force, violence, duress, menace or fear. Also, where a person is prevented from resisting by any intoxicating or controlled substances or when a person is unconscious.

Sexual battery is unsolicited and unwanted touching of an intimate part (sexual organ, anus, groin, buttocks, and breast of a female) or another person’s body. This includes situations where the victim is unable to resist due to alcohol or drug use.

Forcible sodomy is oral or anal sexual intercourse with another person, by force or fear, and against their will, and also when the person is incapable of giving consent because of age or mental or physical incapacity.

Sexual assault with an object is the use of an object or instrument to unlawfully penetrate, however slight, the genital or anal opening of another person, forcibly and against their will or where the victim is incapable of giving consent because of his/her youth or temporary or permanent mental or physical incapacity.

Consent

Consent is informed. Consent is an affirmative, unambiguous, and conscious decision by each participant to engage in mutually agreed-upon sexual activity.

Consent is voluntary.  It must be given without coercion, force, threats, or intimidation. Consent means positive cooperation in the act or expression of intent to engage in the act pursuant to an exercise of free will.

Consent is revocable. Consent to some form of sexual activity does not imply consent to other forms of sexual activity. Consent to sexual activity on one occasion is not consent to engage in sexual activity on another occasion.   A current or previous dating or sexual relationship, by itself, is not sufficient to constitute consent. Even in the context of a relationship, there must be mutual consent to engage in sexual activity.

Consent must be ongoing throughout a sexual encounter and can be revoked at any time. Once consent is withdrawn, the sexual activity must stop immediately.

Consent cannot be given when a person is incapacitated. A person cannot consent if s/he is unconscious or coming in and out of consciousness. A person cannot consent if s/he is under the threat of violence, bodily injury or other forms of coercion. A person cannot consent if his/her understanding of the act is affected by a physical or mental impalement.

Disciplinary Action

The procedures for the school’s disciplinary action in cases of alleged dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking, as required by 34 CFR 668.46(k) are as follows;

Types of Disciplinary Proceedings

Stacey James Institute is committed to providing a prompt, fair, and impartial process from the initial investigation to the result for an institutional disciplinary proceeding of reported domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault or stalking. These proceedings will be conducted by officials who receive annual webinar training on the issues related to domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking, and how to conduct an investigation and hearing process that protects the safety of victims and promotes accountability. Stacey James Institute officials may not have a conflict of interest or bias for or against the accuser or the accused.

The institution may determine which type of proceeding to use based on the circumstances of an allegation of dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking.

Disciplinary proceedings may be conducted for both students and employees. The school director and other administrative staff are responsible for conducting hearings involving students and employees.

Student disciplinary proceeding will be conducted in accordance with the Standards of Student Conduct Administrative Regulations 5500. Employee disciplinary proceedings will be conducted in accordance with legal guidelines and established collective bargaining agreements.

The accuser and the accused may have the same opportunities to have others present during any institutional disciplinary proceeding, including the opportunity to be accompanied to any related meeting or proceeding by the advisor of their choice. The institution will not limit the choice of advisor or presence for either the accuser or the accused in any meeting or disciplinary proceeding however the institution may restrict the extent to which the advisor may participate. Any restriction will apply equally to both parties.

Stacey James Institute will simultaneously notify, in writing, both the accuser and the accused of:

Standards of Evidence

The standard of evidence used during an institutional disciplinary hearing will be an Affirmative Consent standard, meaning a preponderance of evidence. This definition is the same as is used in most civil courts,and is not the standard of beyond a reasonable doubt.  The preponderance of the evidence means that the offence “more likely than not” occurred—i.e., greater than 50% likelihood.

In evaluation of complaints involving sexual assault, it is not a valid excuse that the accused believed the complainant consented if: (A) the accused’s belief arose from his or her own intoxication or recklessness, or (B) the accused did not take reasonable steps to ascertain whether the complainant affirmatively consented.

Sanctions

The Owner/Director may impose sanctions following a final determination of an institutional disciplinary proceeding regarding domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking.  For students, this may include but not be limited to being placed on probation, a suspension or expulsion.  For employees, disciplinary action may include but is not limited to a reprimand, suspension, or release from employment.

The decision-making process in evaluating complaints and sanctions is conducted by a campus board comprised of faculty members, classified staff members, and one administrator. The Board is authorized to recommend a student’s suspension and a permanent expulsion to the school Director. An evidentiary hearing will be held prior to issuing a suspension or expulsion recommendation. The school Director shall exercise final review and approval of all student expulsions.

Protective Measures

Changes in Academic/Work/Living/Transportation Situation

The school will provide written notification to victims about options for available assistance both within the school and in the community and how to request changes to academic, living, transportation, and working situations or protective measures. The school will make accommodations or provide such protective measures if the victim requests them and if they are reasonably available, regardless of whether the victim chooses to report the crime to local law enforcement. Protective measures may include but are not limited to safety escorts, adjusting class schedules and or work schedules. All efforts will be made to minimize the burden on the victim.

Appeal

The institution does not offer an opportunity for the accused or the accuser to appeal the result of the institutional disciplinary procedure. All results are final.

Time Line

All efforts will be made to complete the proceedings in a reasonably prompt time frame, within

90 days after receipt of the complaint. In the event it is deemed necessary the time frame may be extended for an additional 30 days for good cause. Written notice of the extension and the  reason for delay will be provided to both the accuser and the accused.  

GOOD HOUSEKEEPING

Good housekeeping is essential to safe operation. It will result in fewer accidents and will reduce fire hazards. Oil and chemical spills should be cleaned up promptly to eliminate slipping and fire hazards. All work areas must be kept free of tools, materials, draped hoses, extension cords, and other objects which create hazards. Cleaning up the area where you are working is part of the job. A job is not completed until the area is cleaned up.

FIRE PREVENTION AND SECURITY

Fire Prevention

Everyone should exercise good judgment and conduct themselves in a manner that would prevent fires while on school property.

No one should smoke in areas where “No Smoking” signs are posted, or where hazard from smoking exists.

If a fire should occur, contact your supervisor/instructor or the school President.

Stay calm. If the fire is small, select proper extinguisher and attack the fire (if this can be done safely). If fire is not small call 911 immediately. Evacuate premises and go to predetermined meeting place.
