Preventing Sexual Harassment

ACT 270 of the 2018 Regular Session requires that each public servant complete a minimum of one hour of preventing sexual harassment training annually by calendar year. This includes full-time, part-time, contracted, substitute, student workers, and any other person receiving compensation through Ouachita Parish School System.

There are two “Preventing Sexual Harassment Training” video links—one for employees and one for leadershipIF YOU SERVE IN A SUPERVISORY CAPACITY (i.e., principal, supervisor, director, coordinator, assistants, etc., where you have employees assigned under your leadership), YOU ARE REQUIRED TO COMPLETE BOTH OF THE TRAININGS!!


These links can only be accessed through the school system network. Each training is one hour long and will include questions to be answered correctly for completion. At the end of the training, you will be able to print a completion certificate. NOTE:  There are no live or DVD presentations of the training. Each employee must complete it online through the links below. If you fail to print your certificate, there will be no proof that you completed the training.


Once you have completed the training(s), 1) print and give your certificate of completion to your direct supervisor to keep on file at your location, and 2) complete and sign the verification form that your supervisor has been provided.

Note:  When you begin the training, the video title will say 2019.  That is the correct training.
