How is this training part of the McGrath Response System™?

The McGrath Response System™ is a system-wide approach for creating a culture of prevention and response and ensuring compliance with your district’s policies, state laws and federal regulations, including Title VI, Title VII, and Title IX.

It thoroughly addresses bullying, discrimination, sexual harassment, and sexual misconduct with a single, easy-to-follow framework and set of tools. It covers student-to-student, student-to-staff, staff-to-student, and staff-to-staff issues and ensures your school or district is complying with the 2020 Title IX Final Rule.

The Intake & Investigation Foundations Course is a crucial element of the McGrath Response System™. It ensures your designated leaders, such as your investigators, decision-makers and complaint managers, have the knowledge, skills and tools necessary for their roles.

With properly trained leaders ready to thoroughly investigate complaints, it’s important to engage your students and staff to help create a culture of ‘see something, say something.’

Our Staff and Student Awareness and Response Trainings explain what their rights are, what to report and whom to report to. Because all McGrath Courses leverage the same vocabulary and approaches, they reinforce one another and ensure consistency and cohesion across your school or district.
