In Texas, I would say problem 90 percent or more of the schools subscribe to a policy service where the policies are regularly updated and provided to them for a fee. And so every school should have these comprehensive policies, every school should share with their legal counsel these policies, and be guided by the advice and interpretation of its counsel as to how the policy applies in a given circumstance. Those schools and educational institutions that don’t have comprehensive policies are going to find themselves in much deeper hot water when a legitimate claim comes to them in court.
