  Should the aforementioned school or agency with jurisdiction determine after concluding the investigation that an incident of campus sexual assault, sexual harassment, or sexual bullying did in fact occur, it shall provide an investigation report and recommended handling to the school where the offender is employed or enrolled for handling in accordance with the terms listed under Article 30.
