  • Safer, Smarter, Teens: Personal Power

    Erin’s Law was signed into legislation on June 11, 2015, requiring all public schools to provide child sexual abuse prevention to students in grades K-12. School Counselors will use the Safer, Smarter, Teens: Personal Power Curriculum to teach students to recognize danger and how to use their personal power to say “no,” get help, set boundaries, and become leaders. Students learn about the warning signs of unsafe situations and what actions they can take to reduce risks, stay safe, and access help through scenario-based video lessons and in-class activities. Students will bring home a letter prior to the lesson being taught and will receive a follow-up letter specific to each lesson. Lesson 3  & Lesson 4 are taught in the 7thgrade. Lesson 5 & Lesson 6 are taught in the 8thgrade.

    Lesson 3: Grooming and Boundaries

    Students will learn about "Grooming."  Grooming is a technique used by abusers to find a potential victim and identify  his or her vulnerability. 

    Lesson 4-A.C.T.: Abuse, Disclosure, and Getting Help

    The concepts of abuse and disclosure are introduced in this lesson.  Students will learn that grooming and abuse can occur in many different situations with different people in their lives.  

    Lesson 5-Isolation: Staying Safe in the Virtual World

    Students will learn about the possible cyber dangers and the importance of being very careful about information they share online. 

    Lesson 6-S.A.F.E.: It's Ok To Tell

    This lesson reviews the concepts introduced in the previous lessons and exhibits how students can use their personal power.
