3363 - REPORTING OF THREAT OR INTIMIDATION AGAINST SCHOOL EMPLOYEE

In compliance with Indiana law, any employee who has knowledge of a school employee being the subject of a threat, an act of intimidation, or is the victim of a battery or harassment shall report orally this knowledge to the building administrator and to the local law enforcement agency. The building administrator upon receiving such a report shall also make an oral report to the local law enforcement agency.

 

The law provides that any person who reports a threat, an act of intimidation, a battery, or an act of harassment against a school employee, or who participates in any judicial proceeding or other proceeding resulting from such report, is immune from any civil or criminal liability that might otherwise be imposed because of such actions, provided that the individual is acting in good faith.
