December 14, 2018 - 8:30 AM - 12:00 PM - Schwartz Hannum PC - Andover, MA

Many school policies provide that allegations of student misconduct are to be investigated. These allegations can include concerns of bullying, hazing, harassment, threats of violence, or even sexual misconduct. The goal, of course, is to investigate these allegations quickly, thoroughly, confidentially, and in an unbiased manner – but how?

  • Planning The Investigation
