requires school districts to adopt and implement a policy prohibiting dating violence and abuse by any student on school property, during a school sponsored activity, or during school-sponsored transportation, and providing procedures for responding to such incidents of dating violence or abuse, including accommodations for students experiencing dating violence or abuse.
Neither silence, the absence of resistance, nor the existence of a prior consensual sexual relationship are sufficient to indicate consent.
Consent cannot be given by those who are incapacitated by alcohol or illegal or prescription drugs, unconscious, asleep, harassed, coerced, threatened, or otherwise forced into sexual activity.
This may also include abuse, harassment, and stalking via electronic devices such as cell phones and computers, and harassment through a third party, and may be physical, mental, or both.
In Teen Dating Violence relationships, there are Three Important Roles: Obtaining a Protection Order If someone has physically abused, sexually abused, attempted or threatened to physically abuse, stalked and/or unlawfully held another person against his/her will, a protection order may be obtained for the victim's safety.
However, where applicable law mandates different procedures or policies with respect to Middlebury programs outside of Vermont, those procedures or policies will apply.
Consequences of Dating Violence Young people who experience abuse are more likely to be in fights or bring weapons to school, have higher rates of drug and alcohol abuse, and engage in high-risk sexual behaviors.
