6421 Prohibition on Aiding and Abetting Sexual Abuse

In the Grand Island Public Schools a staff member, contractor, or agent of the school district is prohibited from assisting another staff member, contractor, or agent in obtaining a new job if the individual knows or has probable cause to believe, that such other staff member, contractor, or agent engaged in sexual misconduct with a minor or student in violation of the law. 

“Assisting” does not include the routine transmission of administrative and personnel files.

Exceptions to giving such assistance may only be made where the exception is authorized by the Every Student Succeeds Act (for example, where the matter has been investigated by law enforcement and the person has been exonerated and approved by the Superintendent or designee.)
