Introduction

ANNUAL REPORTING OF CLERY ACT DISCLOSURES

Buckner Barber School (BBS) is dedicated to providing a safe and healthy campus environment for students, employees, and the public who visit our campus. Therefore, BBS has issued this report to inform the Campus community, campus visitors, and the general public of the school's policies and procedures for campus security and safety. Though emergencies and incidents of serious crime are almost non-existent at BBS, it is crucial that all members of the campus community know how to report such situations and have an understanding of our security operation. BBS safety policies emphasize open communication with students and employees and a close working relationship with property security, state and local law enforcement agencies.

Buckner Barber School's campus is located at 1515 S. Buckner Blvd. in the bustling Pleasant Grove shopping center suite #147 in Pleasant Grove on the east side of Dallas, Texas.

Preparing the Annual Disclosure of Crime Statistics

The Campus Security and Safety Department maintains an incident report of all occurrences of crimes or emergencies reported on BBS campus and its surrounding public areas. These statistics are published annually (by October 1st of each year) by the Campus Security Director in compliance with the Federal Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1998 (formerly the Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990).

The Student Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act was signed into law in November 1990. Title II of this Act is known as the Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act. It requires institutions participating in student financial aid programs under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 to disclose information about campus safety policies and procedures and to provide statistics concerning certain crimes that occurred on campus.

In compliance with the Act, each year by October 1, institutions must publish and distribute to current and prospective students, faculty and staff, an annual security report that includes statistics concerning the occurrence on campus of certain criminal offenses reported to campus officials and statements about campus safety policies, campus security education and prevention programs, alcohol and drug policies, sexual assault education and prevention programs, procedures for reporting sexual assaults, and procedures for handling reports of sexual assault.

The information included is acquired from various sources, including Pleasant Grove Shopping Center Security, local and state police agencies, and all officials of BBS who have significant responsibility for student and campus activities. To comply with the act, we collect crime statistics from the Dallas Police Departments website concerning the school campus and property immediately adjacent to the school campus. All local police agencies provide automated statistics for the property and a radius around the property requested.

BBS accepts confidential reporting of crimes and does not include the names of victims nor the persons accused of committing crimes in its annual reporting. BBS encourages everyone to report statistics regarding these violations of law. Reports can be made to the following:

Nwamaka Okafor-Director/Campus Security Director......................................214-398-6416

Katreyna Dial-Financial Aid/Admissions ..........................................................214-398-6416

Desirhea Butler-Instructor.................................................................................214-398-6416

Dallas Police Department..................................................................................................911

These statistics contain crimes for the calendar year in which they are reported. The Campus Security Director will provide, upon request, all campus crime statistics as reported to the U.S. Department of Education. You can obtain a copy of this report by contacting Campus Administration at (214-398-6416) or on the Web at www.ope.ed.gov/security/ or www.bucknerbarberschool.com

Fire Statistics /Annual Fire Safety Report

Buckner Barber School does not have on campus housing facilities and is not required to report annual fire statistics. BBS does not have on campus housing and is not required to maintain a log of all fires nor complete an annual fire Safety Report. However, Buckner Barber School did not have any incidences of fire to report for any of the years represented in this report.

Timely Warnings and Emergency Notifications

BBS will issue a timely warning for any Clery Act crime that represents an ongoing threat to the safety of students, clients or employees as a Campus alert. In the unlikely event a dangerous situation presents itself on or near the campus the staff and student body will be notified by the Director, warnings will be posted in a conspicuous place near the time clock and throughout the school and all students who participate in the text and email notification. Inclement weather conditions, storm, tornado or other acts of nature will be announced by the School Director or other staff member in the director's absence.

The campus community shall be informed of any hate-associated factors related to the above.

Information regarding any Clery Act crimes committed on the campus or in the adjacent parking lot will be available and posted in a conspicuous place near the time clock and throughout the school within two (2) business days after the reporting of the crime and be available for sixty (60) business days during normal business hours, unless the disclosure is prohibited by law, would jeopardize the confidentiality of the victim, or an ongoing criminal investigation, the safety of an individual, cause a suspect to flee or evade detection: or result in the destruction of evidence. Once the reason for the lack of disclosure is no longer in force, the institution must disclose the information. If there is a request for information that is older than sixty 60 days, that information must be made available within two (2) business days of the request.

Emergency responses and or evacuation procedures in the event of fire or other emergency are disseminated during orientation procedures. Additionally, evacuation routes and procedures are posted strategically throughout the facility to expedite emergency action.

Text & Email Notification Program

All employees and students are encouraged to participate in either our text or email notification program. Text and email alerts are managed by the School Director, Nwamaka Okafor or designee. Nwamaka Okafor will send out text alerts and or emails regarding safety and announcements required by unforeseen circumstances; including, but not limited to school closures from weather.

Employees and Students can register for notification by providing information to the Admissions office personnel to be used for notification via text messaging and or, to receive messages via email :

Student Health

In instances of student sickness, accident, or emergency health care needs 911 services will be utilized for all student needs. If the student refuses 911 services BBS has a list of hospital phone numbers for the student to choose a site to receive personal health care of his/her choosing.

If the student is a minor or physically and/or mentally unable to make this decision for themselves their parent/guardian or emergency contact will be notified of the situation and the decision will be left up to them. If the student is not a minor they will be given the option of having their emergency contact notified of their condition.

If it becomes known that a health issue that could affect the well being of others has occurred at BBS the Director will be notified immediately. The proper health officials and the student population will be notified of the situation (all student privacy laws will be observed in the notification), all health concerns, and actions necessary in case of a health risk.

Prohibitions -Weapons

Possession, while on campus or at a school sponsored function, of any weapons, or look alike

weapons, including, but not limited to, firearms, explosives, dangerous chemicals, knives, brass

knuckles, licensed weapons, or objects or instruments possessed for use as a weapon or for direct

or indirect delivery to another person for use as a weapon.

For the safety of everyone, all types of weapons are prohibited on campus. Anyone possessing or using

any of these weapons can and will be subject to disciplinary action or criminal arrest. This includes lookalike weapons.

Buckner Barber School Department of Campus Security and Safety

Buckner Barber School does not employ campus security personnel , but encourages both its employees and students to immediately report suspected criminal activity or other emergencies to the nearest available institutional official and/or in the event of emergency to directly contact local law enforcement or other emergency response agencies by dialing (911).

Buckner Barber School is located in a shopping center; the security of which is the responsibility of property owners and or managers. However, aggressive safety practices are strongly advocated by administrators, staff, students and those who visit the School.

BBS officials have no powers of arrest other than the Citizens Arrest Law, and are required in the event of a crime or emergency to call the correct agency or dial (911) for the police and emergency services. The Citizens Arrest Law will be invoked only as a last resort, and after all other possibilities have been explored.

Employees shall contact their immediate or nearest ranking supervisor to report any criminal action or emergency to the appropriate agency by calling (911). If possible, in the interim, the institutional official shall attempt to non-violently deal with the crime or emergency on campus. Individual discretion must be used, as undue risk should not be taken.

Reporting Crimes and Emergencies

All students and employees are required to report any crime or emergency to their institutional official promptly. BBS encourages anyone who is the victim or witness to any crime to promptly report the incident to a school official or the police. Because police reports are public records under state law, the Dallas Police Department cannot hold reports of crime in confidence. Confidential reports for purposes of inclusion in the annual disclosure of crime statistics can be made to the campus security director identified below. If a student or employee wishes to report a crime on a voluntary or confidential basis, the institutional official will be prepared to record and report the crime, but not the name of the informant. The student or employee may, in order to maintain confidentiality, submit the information in writing to his/her institutional official without signature. If you are the victim of a crime and do not want to pursue action within the criminal justice system, you may still want to consider making a confidential report. With your permission, the campus security director can file a report on the details of the incident without revealing your identity. The purpose of a confidential report is to comply with your wish to keep the matter confidential, while taking steps to ensure the future safety of yourself and others. With such information, BBS can keep an accurate record of the number of incidents involving students, determine where there is a pattern of crime with regard to a particular location, method, or assailant, and alert the campus community to potential danger. Reports filed in this manner are counted and disclosed in the annual crimes statistics for the institution.

If at a later date the student does not wish to maintain confidentiality, the student will contact his/her teacher or school official who in turn will contact the nearest supervisor to report criminal actions or emergencies to the appropriate agency by calling (911).

Response to Reports of Crimes and Emergencies

Criminal offences and emergencies reported will be reported immediately to the institution's director, who will assess the situation and decide the necessary course of action (i.e., report it to 911 emergency police/fire/ambulance units and/or other appropriate agency or entity or make a timely warning or emergency notification).

Security and Access to Campus Facilities

Only students, employees and other parties having business with this institution should be on institutional property. All rear access doors leading to the campus are closed and locked during evening hours starting at 5:00pm. When the school closes for the night, the school official or supervisor will inspect the building to see that it is empty and then set the alarms. Other individuals present on institutional property at anytime without the express permission of the appropriate institutional official(s) shall be viewed as trespassing and may as such be subject to a fine and/or arrest. In addition, students and employees present on institutional property during periods of non-operation without the express permission of the appropriate institutional official(s) shall also be viewed as trespassing and may also be subject to a fine and/or arrest.

Awareness Programs

Buckner Barber School program for crime awareness consists of the presentation of our campus safety video and informing students and employees of all BBS crime and safety policies and prevention techniques. The crime awareness and prevention program is given to all new students and new employees during orientation where all the institution's policies and regulations are properly disclosed to prospective students and employees. Students and employees are encouraged to exercise proper care in seeing to their own personal safety and the safety of others. The following is a description of policies, rules and programs designed to inform students and employees about the prevention of crimes on campus.

1. Do not leave personal property in classrooms

2. Report to your institutional official, any suspicious persons.

3. Always try to walk in groups outside the school premises.

4. If you are waiting for a ride, wait within sight of other people

5. Employees (staff and faculty) will close and lock all doors, windows and blinds and turn off lights when leaving a room.

6. The "Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act" is available upon request to students, employees (staff and faculty) and prospective students.

7. The School has no formal program, other than orientation, that disseminates this information. All information is available from the admissions office upon request.

8. Information regarding any Clery Act crimes committed on the campus or adjacent parking lot will be available and posted in a conspicuous place within two (2) business days after the reporting of the crime and be available for sixty (60) business days during normal business hours, unless the disclosure is prohibited by law, would jeopardize the confidentiality of the victim, or an ongoing criminal investigation, the safety of an individual, cause a suspect to flee or evade detection: or result in the destruction of evidence. Once the reason for the lack of disclosure is no longer in force, the institution must disclose the information. If there is a request for information that is older than sixty 60 days, that information must be made available within two (2) business days of the request.

BBS Policies Related to Campus Safety and Security

Buckner Barber School Drug and Alcohol Policy

Buckner Barber School does not permit the sale, possession or consumption of alcoholic beverages on school property and adheres to and enforces all state underage-drinking laws.

Buckner Barber School is a Drug -Free Campus and does not permit the possession, use or sale of illegal drugs by its employees or students and adheres to and enforces all state and Federal drug laws. The violations of these policies by students or employees may result in expulsion, termination and/or arrest.

Training concerning drug and alcohol abuse education and prevention is presented to all new students and new employees during orientation. This training is comprised of information gathered from NIAAA: National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, NIDA: National Institute on Drug Abuse, NCADD: National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, and the Foundation for A Drug-Free World . Information on agencies that provide counseling and help on drug and alcohol abuse education is posted in a conspicuous location available to students and staff. In addition to the in-house Drug and Alcohol Abuse Awareness and Prevention training a graphic video presentation on the dangers and effects of drug and alcohol abuse is presented by the Dallas County Coroner's Office twice annually. The BBS Drug and Alcohol Policy in its entirety is available at www.bucknerbarberschool.com.

SEXUAL VIOLENCE POLICY
Buckner Barber School holds that sexual violence has no place in the academic environment and the School will not tolerate it. Additionally, under state and Federal laws, sexual violence (inclusive of, but not limited to: sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, dating violence, domestic violence, stalking and sexual assault of employees or students) is illegal. Buckner Barber School seeks to eliminate sexual violence through education and by encouraging faculty, staff, and students to report concerns or complaints. The school takes the matter of sexual violence very seriously; therefore, any acts of sexual violence should be reported immediately to the School Director. After a thorough investigation, anyone found to have violated this policy will be subject to disciplinary action -up to and including dismissal/discharge from BBS.

Buckner Barber School uses an "affirmative consent" standard, whereas:

  • Consent is informed and an affirmative, unambiguous, and conscious decision by each participant to engage in mutually agreed-upon sexual activity.
  • Consent is voluntary. It must be given without coercion, force, threats, or intimidation. Consent is an expression of free will.
  • Consent is revocable . Consent in some form of sexual activity does not imply consent to other forms of sexual activity. Consent to sexual activity on one occasion is not consent to engage in sexual activity on another occasion. A current or previous dating or sexual relationship, by itself, is not sufficient to constitute consent. Even in the context of a relationship, there must be mutual consent to engage in sexual activity. Consent must be ongoing throughout a sexual encounter and can be revoked at any time. Once consent is withdrawn, the sexual activity must stop immediately.
  • Consent cannot be given when a person is incapacitated . A person cannot consent if she/he is under the influence of drugs, alcohol, or medication, unconscious or coming in and out of consciousness. A person cannot consent if she/he is under the threat of violence, bodily injury or other forms of coercion. A person cannot consent if his/her understanding of the act is affected by a physical or mental impairment.

Definition of Sexual Misconduct
Sexual misconduct includes a range of behaviors used to obtain sexual contact against a person's will. Sexual misconduct is defined as sexual contact without consent by someone you know or a stranger and includes: intentional touching without consent, either of the victim or when the victim is forced to touch, directly or through clothing, another person's genitals, breast, groin, thighs or buttocks; rape (sexual intercourse without consent whether by someone you know or stranger); attempted rape; sodomy (oral or anal intercourse) without consent; or sexual penetration with an object without consent.

Definition of Sexual Harassment

1. The prohibition applies to all staff employees and students, and in particular to supervisors (including direct supervisory and other management staff). A sexual advance violates this policy regardless of whether the advance is expressly related to the affected employee's/student's employment/academic status. It is improper to make sexual advances, ask for, demand or seek by subtle pressure sexual favors or activity from an employee/student, or to subject another employee/student to verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature where:

2. It is improper for an employee/student to make sexual advances or to offer or suggest sexual favors or activity in exchange or in consideration for any personnel/academic action.

3. It is improper to retaliate against an employee/student for refusing a sexual advance or for refusing a request, demand or pressure for sexual favors or activity or to retaliate against an employee/student who has reported an incident of possible sexual harassment to the University or to any government agency.

4. It is not possible to identify each and every act which constitutes or may constitute sexual harassment. However, certain conduct is clearly improper and is strictly prohibited. Persons engaging in this conduct, or other similar acts, will be subject to discipline up to and including dismissal from the University. Such acts might include:

Definition of Dating Violence
The term "dating violence" means violence committed by a person:

Who is or has been in a social relationship of a romantic or intimate nature with the victim; and where the existence of such a relationship shall be determined based on a consideration of the following factors: the length of the relationship; the type of relationship; and the frequency of the interaction between the persons involved in the relationship

Definition of Domestic Violence
The term ''domestic violence'' includes felony or misdemeanor crimes of violence committed by a current or former spouse of the victim, by a person with whom the victim shares a child in common, by a person who is cohabitating with or has cohabitated with the victim as a spouse, by a person similarly situated to a spouse of the victim under the domestic or family violence laws of the jurisdiction receiving grant monies, or by any other person against an adult or youth victim who is protected from that person's acts under the domestic or family violence laws of the jurisdiction.

Definition of Stalking
The term ''stalking'' means engaging in a course of conduct, regardless of medium used, that is directed at a specific person that would cause a reasonable person to- (A) fear for his/her safety or the safety of others; or (B) suffer substantial emotional distress.

Definition of Sexual Assault
An offense classified as a forcible or non-forcible sex offense under the uniform crime reporting system of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The conduct described in this policy is strictly prohibited. If anyone, including non-employees/non-students, engages in such conduct, it is important that the conduct be reported to the Executive Director of Human Resources. It is not possible for the University to enforce this policy if incidents of harassment are not reported. The procedure to follow if the student feels that he/she has been subjected to sexual harassment/sexual misconduct is set forth in the Student Catalog.

Buckner Barber School Sexual Harassment Policy

The alleged victim and alleged perpetrator are entitled to have others present during any disciplinary proceeding. Both the alleged victim and alleged perpetrator must be informed of the outcome of any School disciplinary proceeding regarding an alleged sex offense.

Sexual harassment on campus will be reported immediately to the institution's director, who will assess the incidence to determine if it needs to be reported to (911) emergency and police units. The person who was victimized will be encouraged to seek appropriate counseling at a rape crisis center and to maintain all physical evidence until such a time as that person can be properly transported to a hospital or rape crisis center for proper treatment. This institution has zero tolerance of such actions; the violation of this policy by students or employees may result in expulsion, while investigations are being conducted, and termination and/or arrest if found guilty.

Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act

The Federal Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act, enacted on October 28, 2000, went into effect October

education is located (even if they do not reside in that state) once they are enrolled or begin employment at that institution of higher education. Changes in enrollment or employment status also must be made known to the state. The law requires institutions of higher education to issue a statement advising their campus community where to obtain law enforcement agency information provided by their state concerning registered sex offenders. Under the Texas Department of Public Safety's Sex Offender Registry, rules have been established regarding the dissemination of information on sex offenders.
