Why this petition matters

Laguna Beach High Students for better Sexual Assault and Harassment Policy

As students at LBHS, we feel that our school’s current approach to cases concerning sexual assault and harassment is tremendously flawed. We are frustrated by the lack of action taken by the district to ensure a safe and comfortable environment for students. Our grievances are summarized below:

The school fails to provide sufficient support or resources to victims throughout the reporting process.
Perpetrators of SA and SH are not adequately punished, so students do not trust the process of reporting
Our school policies send the message that the comfort and safety of female students is secondary to those of male students.

Although we’ve communicated these issues to the administration, it seems that solutions are either insufficient or nonexistent. To remedy these problems, we demand that the school:


Institutes a more comprehensive policy in dealing with SA and SH offenders, meaning more intense disciplinary action and the institution of correctional programs. 
Properly accommodates the desires of victims surrounding legal action, school discipline, and schedule changing, even to the inconvenience of the perpetrator. 
Clearly and loudly communicates the process of reporting both SA and SH to all students, as promised within the student handbook.

By signing this petition, students affirm their desire for LBHS to critically reexamine its approach to sexual assault and harassment in accordance with the demands above.
