There is a new, independent online tracking tool available that allows San Diego County residents to report suspected sexual and physical abuse of students.
The tool was unveiled along with a new task force by District Attorney Summer Stephan after a two-year investigation by Voice of San Diego into harassment and abuse in San Diego County’s public schools. The tool aims to address some of the issues raised in the investigation, such as gaps in mandatory reporting of suspected abuse.
Kayla Jimenez, who wrote about several cases of sexual misconduct by teachers, joined Midday Edition on Tuesday to talk about her reporting and how the DA's new program may address some of the systemic problems she uncovered.
