On Monday, May 14th, Springs School, in conjunction with The Retreat, junior high students participated in their new sexual harassment prevention program called #NotForMe.  The program builds on nationally recognized curriculums, and its goal is to build awareness about what sexual harassment is, why it is a problem, and what to do if someone is targeted.

#NotForMe provides prevention programming in accordance with New York’s Dignity for All Students Act (DASAas well as federal Title IX legislation.  Our school's goal is to be clear and direct in defining sexual harassment in an age-appropriate way, and to build awareness that sexualized comments and behavior are not appropriate in school.  Parents were also invited to attend the workshop the week before.
