Steubenville Superintendent Plans Expanded Sexual Harassment, Date Rape Curriculum

UPDATED: Friday January 11, 2013 3:57 PM

Two 16-year-old high school football players have been charged with sexually assaulting a young girl after a series of parties in August.     

Superintendent Mike McVey said he understands how much of the public outrage is directed at insensitive pictures and comments shared by students via social networking sites.

McVey called the way students handled the issue online a “horrible act” and said Friday the schools are going to “explore more social media to get them (students) more educated with that.”

The schools are planning to expand its curriculum related to sexual harassment, bullying, date rape and substance abuse, McVey said.
