Student Gets Sexually Harassed At School, School Responds In The Worst Way

A teen from Nevada reported to her high school's administration that another student sexually harassed her. The young man groped her under her skirt, leaving the victim in distress. The school decided the best way to handle the situation was to have the two students sign a contract not to have further contact with each other. Part of the deal was a gag order.

Alyssa Wilson is a 16-year-old junior at Las Vegas High School. She says that on May 8, she says she went to school and was approached by a male student. He asked her if she was cold, then lifted her dress and repeatedly said, "What do you have on under?”

The incident rattled Alyssa. She burst into tears in the middle of class and had trouble focusing on her work. A concerned teacher asked her what was wrong, and Alyssa told the teacher about the alleged incident, and the teacher accompanied the young girl to the office to fill out a report.

The school administration pulled the security camera footage to review it, but at the time when the boy was supposed to have pulled up Alyssa's skirt, the film glitches. Because of this, they said they had no evidence.

As a solution, the school gave the two students a 'No Contact Contract.' Each were to sign the contract, which says they should not contact each other in any way, and that they will not discuss the incident with anyone.

“So you get sexually harassed at school and all you get is a contract??” Alyssa wrote on Twitter. She snapped a photo of the contract she was asked to sign.

According to a spokesperson for the Clark County School District, such contracts have become standard. "This is a standard thing at the school, and it’s just a form you’re asked to sign with the hope that the student will honor what they’ve signed and agreed to do,” he said.

“...[H]igh schools across the country are still failing to address gender-based harassment and violence," says Sejal Singh, a policy organizer with advocacy group 'Know Your IX'. The group educates student activists on Title IX , a law that prohibits sexual discrimination. "Last year, around 100 were under federal investigation for violating Title IX in their handling of sexual assault alone, and even more schools may be under investigation for complaints related to sexual harassment that does not rise to the level of assault.”
