National Aviation Academy compiles this Annual Security Report by contacting (via letter and follow-up phone call) all local police and sheriff’s departments of municipalities in which National Aviation Academy has buildings or student housing in and requests specific crime statistics for each location. Upon receipt of these statistics, the data is used to create the following report, which contains the previous three years’ worth of specific crime statistics that are required by The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, as well as the following information that is also required by the Act:

· Statement of current campus policies regarding procedures and facilities for students and others to report criminal actions or other emergencies occurring on campus, and policies concerning the institutions response to such reports (20 U.S.C. § 1092(f)(1)(A)).

Any criminal actions and other emergencies at National Aviation Academy shall be immediately reported to National Aviation Academy’s Operations staff. The Operations staff member will then take a written report of the incident, and report the incident to the appropriate law enforcement agency for further review and actions. Any person wishing to report a crime confidentially may do so through the same channels, but when reported to law enforcement the identity of the individual reporting the crime shall remain anonymous.

National Aviation Academy will maintain all reports submitted to the school and utilize the statistical data in the creation of this Annual Security Report. Also National Aviation Academy’s President will be informed of any reports and will decide on the proper dissemination of the information to staff, students, and/or the community.

· Statement of current policies regarding security and access to campus facilities, including campus residences, and security considerations used in the maintenance of campus facilities (20 U.S.C. § 1092(f)(1)(B)).

National Aviation Academy’s campus security information is explained in detail at all new student orientations and on the first day of classes for each new class start, which occur approximately every 5 weeks. The Director of education and all instructors of both campuses will be responsible for the communication of the importance of campus and personal security, as well as the prevention of crimes.

Campus facilities are only available to students when staff members are present for regularly scheduled class times and make up time, the schedules for these times are published in the current catalog and student handbook. When staff members are working outside of normal business hours or when minimal staff are present they are encouraged to keep all doors to the facility locked.

· Policy statement which encourages accurate and prompt reporting of all crime to appropriate law enforcement agencies (20 U.S.C. § 1092(f)(1)(C)(iii)).

National Aviation Academy encourages its students to report all crimes to its Operations staff on campus. An Operations staff member is on campus during all regularly scheduled class times and make up time. Once the Operations staff has taken a written report of an incident or crime they shall immediately contact the appropriate law enforcement agency in a timely manner to accurately and promptly deliver the taken report to the law enforcement agency responsible for handling the associated incident or crime. Once the incident or crime has been reported to the appropriate law enforcement agency the Operations staff member then will notify a Director level staff member or Vice President of the incident.

National Aviation Academy is committed to providing a safe learning and working environment for our students, staff, and guests visiting our campuses. We will always cooperate with authorities in their investigations and assist them in any way possible, including but not limited to the investigation of sexual assault and any other sexually related crimes.

· Description of the type and frequency of programs designed to inform students and employees about campus security procedures and practices and to encourage students and employees to be responsible for their own security and the security of others (20 U.S.C. § 1092(f)(1)(D)).

National Aviation Academy regularly updates and disseminates campus security procedures and practices to ensure the safety of all individuals on campus at all times. Security information is primarily disseminated to students through the student catalog and handbook, which every student who attends the academy receives. Any security updates to campus security procedures and practices will be relayed to the students by the Director of Education no later than one week following the change.

National Aviation Academy employees will be notified of any security procedure and practice changes immediately after final approval of an updated procedures document. The Director of I.T. and Compliance will notify the employees of the updated procedure document through company email. The updated document will at that time be available on the Corporate Policies and Procedures page found on the Compliance Intranet page.

Immediate Threat Policy and Procedure

Under the Clery Act, National Aviation Academy is required to notify the campus community as soon as there is reasonable confirmation of a significant emergency or dangerous situation occurring on the campus that involves an immediate threat to the health or safety of students or employees. NAA is not required to alert the campus community if a threat to campus is immediately contained.

Timely warnings are issued on a case-by-case basis to help reduce the risk of a campus community member becoming the victim of a health or safety threat.

In the event that a situation arises, either on or off campus, that, in the judgment of the Chief Operating Officer in consult with the Senior Executive Vice President Operations and Education or the SVP’s designee, constitutes an ongoing or continuing threat, a campus wide “timely warning” will be issued. The warning will be issued through the campus e-mail and/or text system to students, faculty, staff.

Depending on the particular circumstances, especially in all situations that could pose an immediate threat to the community and individuals, the Compliance Office may also post a notice on the National Aviation Academy web site, providing the NAA community with more immediate notification. In such instances, a copy of the notice is posted in student centered locations throughout the campus, in the Hangar and in the Student Service Centered Offices. Anyone with information warranting a timely warning should report the circumstances to the Compliance office, by phone (727-531-2080) or in person.

TITLE IX

· Statement of policy regarding campus sexual assault programs and the procedures followed once a sex offense has occurred (20 U.S.C. § 1092(f)(8)(A)).

National Aviation Academy provides educational materials to students and employees covering areas such as crime, rape prevention, and forcible and non-forcible sex offenses. National Aviation Academy has chosen the following channels of delivery to disseminate this information:

· New student orientation (held approximately every 5 weeks)
· Student News Flash article distributed every Monday
· National Aviation Academy’s Consumer Information web page
· Information Boards and Break rooms
· Student Catalog and Handbook
· Student Resource Fairs (held semi-annually)

In addition, more Information to prevent sexual violence may be obtained at rainn.org.

If any student, employee or visitor of National Aviation Academy is the victim of a forcible or non-forcible sex offense they are encouraged to contact the local police department near their current location by calling 911, if off campus. If the incident occurs on campus the student, employee or visitor is encouraged to use the same reporting procedure as listed in earlier sections of this report.

In sexual offense cases involving forcible or non-forcible sex it is important that all evidence is preserved for the proof of the offense. Victims of a sexual crime should make every effort to save anything that might contain the perpetrator’s DNA, therefore a victim should not:

· Take a bath or shower
· Use the restroom
· Change clothes
· Comb hair
· Clean up the crime scene
· Move anything the offender may have touched

National Aviation Academy has a zero tolerance for any crime or offenses of a sexual nature, and if appropriate, may change or correct a student’s academic situation to provide a better learning environment if reasonably available.

All disciplinary proceedings regarding sexual crimes, when the accused is found responsible, may result in permanent suspension, suspension for a period of time, probation, an official warning, or any combination of these. In addition both the accuser and the accused will be entitled to the same opportunities to have others present during a disciplinary proceeding and both will be informed of the outcome of the proceeding that is brought alleging a sexual offense. Informing both the accuser and the accused does not constitute a violation of the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), due to the information being released will only be the final determination with respect to the alleged sex offense and any sanction that is imposed against the accused.

Lastly, upon request counseling services can be made available for crisis victims through Operation PAR for Tampa Bay students and Riverside Wellness Care for New England Students. Information for these facilities can be found in the office of Student Services at the students corresponding campus.

Sexual Predator and Sexual Offender Notification

The Florida Legislatures Florida educational institutions, both private and public, to include sex offender registry information in new student and employee orientation and on the institution’s website.

Section 3. Section 1005.10, Florida Statutes, reads:

1005.10 Sexual predator and sexual offender notification; nonpublic colleges, universities, and schools.—Each nonpublic college, university and school shall inform students and employees at orientation and on its website of the existence of the Department of Law Enforcement sexual predator and sexual offender registry website and the toll-free telephone number that gives access to sexual predator and sexual offender public information pursuant to s. 943.043.
