OCR finds fault with Forest Hills

We recently wrote about a lawsuit filed by a student who attended school in the Forest Hills School District (in Michigan).
The sexual assault at the center of this lawsuit also prompted a complaint to OCR which has investigated Forest Hills and found that the district did not properly investigate the claims of two female students who alleged sexual assault at the hands of a single assailant. Also, procedures to address allegations of sexual assault and harassment are inadequate, the agency determined.
The superintendent is taking issue with OCR's report. He has stated that investigators never interviewed him or the Title IX coordinator.
