Evergreen School District Sex Abuse Scandal Made Worse with Non-Compliance of a Federal Law to Protect Students from Molestation According to NBC Bay Area

NBC Bay Area Investigative Unit claims the Evergreen School District ignored a federal law designed to protect students in molestation and sex abuse cases like the one involving O.B. Whaley School and their former teacher Craig Chandler and Principal Lyn Vijayendran. Title IX requires schools to have a system in place to file sexual harassment and sex abuse complaints, a trained coordinator to process them and that this information be made public for staff, students and parents. According to the report, at the time of the alleged sex abuse, Evergreen did not have a trained Title IX coordinator or contact information published online.

“If they had followed the law appropriately, none of this would have happened,” attorney Robert Allard told NBC Bay Area.
