EXETER — Phillips Exeter Academy has officially hired two professionals in order to oversee "student well-being" in response to the several sexual assault allegations reported in recent months.
Tina Sciocchetti, of global law firm Nixon Peabody, and Jane Stapleton, of the UNH Prevention Innovations Research Center, will be responsible for jointly handling the student well-being position until a single person is selected. Both will be working to evaluate and refine the school’s handling of sexual misconduct allegations, according to seacoastonline.
Sciocchetti served as an executive director at the New York State Education Department working on disciplinary cases involving inappropriate relationships between teachers and students. Stapleton has worked with the Department of Defense on programs for the military and served as an expert witness for the Deaprtment of Justice in Title IX cases, seacoast reports.
