That's probably because of an insurance policy that requires certain cases to be settled. My spouse deals with this all the time in her industry. That doesn't mean someone is guilty. That means the insurance policy requires a free pay day instead of an actual trial. Also doesn't mean the teacher ever has to deal with anything therefore LOL is correct.
You won't be able to, because nearly 100% of those "big pay day" events require a nondisclosure notice and a penalty if said nondisclosure is broken.
Ask your school district's attorneys. Schools are sued regularly, usually in civil court. Even though the burden of proof rests with the accuser, the district will pay someone $25,000 to go away and not discuss the issue rather than pay their team of lawyers $35,000 to defend it and win.
Remember, in civil court, you can sue anyone at any time for practically any reason. It happens regularly.
Criminal suits frequently brought up against districts deal with special education and title IX violations - and those also happen regularly. Do your own research.
Show me one instance of a “big pay day” from someone suing a school district over anything remotely like what is being described. Be it band sports cheer etc. I’ll wait
Some of you are so scared of being sued it cracks me up
