Wash. District Trains Employees to Spot Sex Predators
TACOMA, Wash. — A string of sex offenses within the district has prompted Tacoma Public Schools to enhance its employee training on sexual abuse.
The district already had a boundary-invasion training in place, which explained what it means to cross the line with students, including sending social text messages to exchanging gifts.
