Investigating Historical Employee Sexual Misconduct

In keeping with established practices among independent schools, in 2017 the School began to investigate historical employee sexual misconduct. 具体地说, 这些调查主要集中在发生时未被报告的事件上, or incidents in which the School’s contemporary response was deficient. All such investigations are conducted by outside investigators. School employees do not communicate with the outside investigators, 除非全面和坦率地回答他们网赌最正规的平台指控的问题,并遵守提供相关记录的要求, such as personnel files.
