 The Student Right to Know Act




The Orlo School has designated Rick Caputo, President and Alice Caputo, Director, as contact personnel for any issues relating to campus security.


The Orlo School requests that students and employees report any criminal activity/action on campus to the individuals designated. These designated individuals will assist the student/employee in reporting the incident to the local police authorities. Reports of criminal activity/action should include murder, rape, robbery aggravated assault, burglary, and motor vehicle theft. Reports should also include any arrests for liquor law violation, drug abuse violations, and weapons possessions within five (5) days.

At six-month intervals, The Orlo School provides an assembly with a representative from the Albany Police Department to discuss campus security and crime prevention measures with the students and employees as well as a drug abuse seminar, also with a representative from the Albany Police Department and/or a representative from an area drug rehabilitation program.

The Orlo School provides each of its students and employees with guidelines of our policies regarding campus security and crime prevention as well as an annual report of statistics regarding any incidents of criminal activity on our campus in an effort to prevent similar occurrences of crimes considered to be a threat to other students and employees.

The School will not tolerate the possession, use, or sale of alcoholic beverages or illegal drugs by any student or employee. Any campus occurrence will lead to dismissal.

Clear statement against sex discrimination:

Clear statement of the schoolÕs commitment to VAWA:

The school is commitment to providing a safe environment for students, staff and faculty and are committed to the heart and the spirit of VAWA.

What is covered by VAWA:

Students, staff and faculty on the school property between the hours of 8:30 am and 10:00 pm on Monday through Thursday plus Friday between the hours of 8:30 am and 3:15 pm and Saturday between the hours of 9:00 am and 2:30 pm are covered by the policy. The school property includes the building and the parking lot. Off-site activities in which the students, staff and faculty participate are covered by the policy. If a student is victimized off school property the student may certainly talk to someone at the school for guidance however the school cannot investigate or adjudicate this type of incident as the perpetrator is not a student and outside the scope of this policy.

Reporting and Confidentially Disclosing Violence: Know the Options:

The school encourages victims of the four acts covered by VAWA to talk to somebody about what happened Š so victims can get the support they need, and so the School can respond appropriately.

Different employees at the school have different abilities to maintain a victim's confidentiality.

                Some are required to maintain near complete confidentiality; talking to them is sometimes called a Ņprivileged communication."

                Other employees may talk to a victim in confidence, and generally only report to the School that an incident occurred without revealing any personally identifying information. Disclosures to these employees will not trigger an investigation into an incident against the victim's wishes.

                Thirdly, some employees are required to report all the details of an incident (including the identities of both the victim and alleged perpetrator) to the Title IX coordinator. A report to these employees (called Ņresponsible employeesÓ) constitutes a report to the School - and generally obligates the School to investigate the incident and take appropriate steps to address the situation.

This policy is intended to make students aware of the various reporting and confidential disclosure options available to them - so they can make informed choices about where to turn should they become a victim. The School encourages victims to talk to someone identified in one or more of these groups.

Non-professional Counselors and Advocates:

Individuals, who work at the school, including front desk staff, can generally talk to a victim without revealing any personally identifying information about an incident to the School. A victim can seek assistance and support from these individuals without triggering an investigation that could reveal the victimÕs identity or that the victim has disclosed the incident.

While maintaining a victimÕs confidentiality, these individuals or their office should report the nature, date, time, and general location of an incident to the Title IX Coordinator. This limited report - which includes no information that would directly or indirectly identify the victim - helps keep the Title IX Coordinator informed of the general extent and nature of the incident at the school or event so the coordinator can track patterns, evaluate the scope of the problem, and formulate appropriate responses. Before reporting any information to the Title IX Coordinator, these individuals

will consult with the victim to ensure that no personally identifying details are shared with the Title IX Coordinator.

Following is contact information for these non-professional counselors and advocates: All instructors currently working for the school. A victim who speaks to a professional or non-professional counselor or advocate must understand that, if the victim wants to maintain confidentiality, the School will be unable to conduct an investigation into the particular incident or pursue disciplinary action against the alleged perpetrator. Even so, these counselors and advocates will still assist the victim in receiving other necessary protection and support, such as victim advocacy, academic support or accommodations, disability, health or mental health services, and changes to course schedules. A victim who at first requests confidentiality may later decide to file a complaint with the school or report the incident to local law enforcement, and thus have the incident fully investigated.

These counselors and advocates will provide the victim with assistance if the victim wishes to do so.

NOTE: While these professional and non-professional counselors and advocates may maintain a victim's confidentiality vis-^-vis the School, they may have reporting or other obligations under state law, such as child services if a minor is involved. ALSO NOTE: If the School determines that the alleged perpetrators) pose a serious and immediate threat to the School the Campus Security Authority, Alice Caputo may be called upon to issue a timely warning to the school. Any such warning should not include any information that identifies the victim.

B Reporting to ŅResponsible Employees:

A Ņresponsible employeeÓ is a school employee who has the authority to redress domestic, dating or sexual violence, who has the duty to report incidents of sexual violence or other student misconduct, or who a student could reasonably believe has this authority or duty. When a victim tells a responsible employee about an incident of sexual violence, the victim has the right to expect the school to take immediate and appropriate steps to investigate what happened and to resolve the matter promptly and equitably. A responsible employee must report to the Title IX coordinator all relevant details about the alleged incident shared by the victim and that the School will need to determine what happened - including the names of the victim and alleged perpetrator(s), any witnesses, and any other relevant facts, including the date, time and specific location of the alleged incident.    To the extent possible, information reported to a responsible employee will be shared only with                 people responsible for handling the SchoolÕs response to the report. A responsible employee should not share information with law enforcement without the victimÕs consent or unless the victim has also reported the incident to law enforcement.

Responsible employees will not pressure a victim to request confidentiality, but will honor and support the victimÕs wishes, including for the School to fully investigate an incident, Responsible employees will not pressure a victim to make a full report if the victim is not ready to.

Requesting Confidentiality From the School: How the School will weigh the request and respond. If a victim discloses an incident to a responsible employee but wishes to maintain confidentiality or requests that no investigation into a particular incident be conducted or disciplinary action taken, the School must weigh that request against the SchoolÕs obligation to provide a safe, non-discriminatory environment for all students, including the victim.

If the School honors the request for confidentiality, a victim must understand that the SchoolÕs ability to

meaningfully investigate the incident and pursue disciplinary action against the alleged perpetrators) may be limited.

Although rare, there are times when the School may not be able to honor a victimÕs request in order to provide a safe, non-discriminatory environment for all students. The School has designated the following individuals) to evaluate requests for confidentiality once a responsible employee is on notice of alleged incident: Alice Caputo, Director

When weighing a victimÕs request for confidentiality or that no investigation or discipline be pursued, Alice Caputo will consider a range of factors, including the following:

                The increased risk that the alleged perpetrator will commit additional acts of sexual or other violence, such as:

                whether there have been other sexual violence complaints about the same alleged perpetrator;

                whether the alleged perpetrator has a history of arrests or records from a prior school indicating a history of


                whether the alleged perpetrator threatened further sexual violence or other violence against the victim or others;

                whether the sexual violence was committed by multiple perpetrators;

                whether the sexual violence was perpetrated with a weapon;

                whether the victim is a minor;

                whether the School possesses other means to obtain relevant evidence of the sexual violence (e.g., security cameras or personnel, physical evidence);

               whether the victimÕs report reveals a pattern of perpetration (e.g., via illicit use of drugs or alcohol) at a given location or by a particular group.

The presence of one or more of these factors could lead the School to investigate and, if appropriate, pursue disciplinary action. If none of these factors is present, the School will likely respect the victimÕs request for confidentiality. If the School determines that it cannot maintain a victimÕs confidentiality, the School will inform the victim prior to starting an investigation and will, to the extent possible, only share information with people responsible for handling the SchoolÕs response. The School will remain ever mindful of the victimÕs

well-being, and will take ongoing steps to protect the victim from retaliation or harm and work with the victim to create a safety plan. Retaliation against the victim, whether by students or School employees, will not be tolerated. The School will also:

                assist the victim in accessing other available victim advocacy, academic support, counseling, disability, health or mental health services, and legal assistance (see portion of policy identifying these);

                provide other security and support, which could include issuing a no-contact order, helping arrange a change course schedules (including for the alleged perpetrator pending the outcome of an investigation) or adjustments for assignments or tests; and

                Inform the victim of the right to report a crime to local law enforcement - and provide the victim with assistance if the victim wishes to do so.

The School may not require a victim to participate in any investigation or disciplinary proceeding. Because the School is under a continuing obligation to address the issue of domestic and/or sexual violence school-wide, reports of domestic/sexual violence (including non-identifying reports) will also prompt the School to consider broader remedial action - such as increased monitoring, supervision or security at locations where the reported incident occurred; increasing education and prevention efforts, including to targeted population groups; conducting climate assessments/victimization surveys; and/or revisiting its policies and practices.

If the School determines that it can respect a victimÕs request for confidentiality, the School will also take immediate action as necessary to protect and assist the victim.

Miscellaneous Anonymous Reporting

Although the School encourages victims to talk to someone, the School provides a system for anonymous reporting. The system will notify the user (before s/he enters information) that entering personally identifying information may serve as notice to the School for triggering an investigation.

NOTE: While these off-premise counselors and advocates may maintain a victimÕs confidentiality vis-a-vis the School, they may have reporting or other obligations under state law such as incidents that involved minors.

Assistance following the Reporting of an Alleged Incident - Immediate once an incident is reported the school will:

                provide contact information for trained professionals who can provide an immediate confidential response in a crisis situation,

                provide emergency numbers for law enforcement and other first responders if needed,

                describe what resources the school has to offer to assist,

                identify health care options which to ensure the victim is aware of options to seek treatment for injuries, preventative treatment for sexually transmitted diseases, and other health services. Discuss the option of seeking medical treatment in order to preserve evidence. Identify where to get a rape kit done if needed. Assistance following the Reporting of an Alleged Incident - Ongoing

                Identify counseling and support for victims whether or not a victim chooses to make an official report or participate in the schoolÕs disciplinary or criminal process

                Identify options for disclosing confidentially with counseling, advocacy, health, mental health or sexual- misconduct-related sources

                Identify those who can provide ongoing support during the institutional disciplinary or criminal process.

                Describe the immediate steps and interim measures that the school can provide to ensure the safety and well-being of the victim while at school such as the ability to change schedules.

Investigation Procedures and Protocols:

The schoolÕs Title IX Coordinator is responsible for enforcing VAWA policies and procedures as outlined in this document.

Please note: As the Title IX Coordinator is not expected to be a lawyer or police officer the investigative and adjudication aspects of VAWA will need to be done in conjunction with local law enforcement and/or local domestic or sexual violence crisis centers. Students ARE NOT required to report any victimization to the school, police, or local crisis center. This is just a statement explaining that should a student report a victimization to the school, investigative and adjudication will be to the best of the Title IX Coordinators abilities and those abilities do not include those that can better be performed by professionals with those skills. The investigation:

If the victim prefers to remain confidential and does not reveal the perpetrators name, the incident will not be able to be investigated. Should the victim want an investigation the Title IX coordinator will explain what can  be done without the involvement of local law enforcement. This will depend on the incident. If the victim wants local law enforcement involved they will be called in and take over.

The timeframe for action if an investigation by the school is done, the timeframe will depend on the type of incident. Every effort will be made to conduct the investigation in a timely manner. If local law enforcement is brought in, they will explain the timeframe.

               The possible results of the adjudication process include but are not limited to, suspension from class for a period of time, termination from school, limited outside activities that are a part of the school.

                Once the sanctions have been determined, remedies or accommodations for the victim if needed will be discussed with the victim to determine the best course of action.

                If additional remedies are needed for the school community, they will be reviewed with the school community depending on the sanctions and any remedies needed for the victim.

                Both parties will be informed of the results of the adjudication process in writing. There is no option for appeal.

                The school will not require a party to party to abide by a nondisclosure agreement, in writing or otherwise, that would prevent the re-disclosure of information related to the outcome of the proceeding.

               Off-campus Counselors and Advocates.

Off-premises counselors, advocates, and health care providers will also generally maintain confidentiality and not share information with the School unless the victim requests the disclosure and signs a consent or waiver form.
