Illinois public schools are required to provide from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade with age-appropriate personal safety awareness and prevention education. Lessons have been carefully developed to comply with this requirement to provide developmentally sensitive and appropriate training for our students. Additionally, staff receive annual professional development on this topic. Parents/guardians will also be provided with resources and information annually.
The district provides 5 days advance notice to parents prior to offering any class or course in recognizing and avoiding sexual abuse to pupils in grades kindergarten through 8th grade. The district provides that such pupils shall not be required to take the course if their parent/guardian submits a written objection.
