"In January of 2013, Governor Pat Quinn signed a new law extending sexual abuse education to Illinois schools. “Erin’s Law” requires schools to provide child sexual prevention education for all students, early childhood through 12th grade, yearly. Arlington Heights School District 25 will begin implementing training in compliance with Erin’s Law beginning April 27, 2015 through the end of the school year. School social workers will work with each grade level to provide age-appropriate information on topics such as: safe versus unsafe touching, the touching rule, secrets, and reporting. In middle school, the focus will shift to safe dating and self-advocacy.
On April 15th, the District hosted an information session about Erin's Law, including information about the structure and curriculum that will be presented at different grade levels. Please use this link, Erin's Law Video Presentation, to view a video compilation of the presentations from that evening. The PowerPoint presentations are also available.
