The Child Advocacy Center of Warren County honored Mason Schools with its Stewards of Children award this month on Nov. 18th. The District Associate Superintendent Amy Spicher accepted the award in honor of the district’s recognition of and dedication to protecting youth.
The 11,000-student Warren County school system became the first Ohio school district this year to require each of its staff to participate in Darkness to Light’s Stewards of Children child sexual abuse curriculum. The Child Advocacy Center of Warren County provided the training.
The district also implemented a Safety Audit Checklist and adopted procedure changes to strengthen its ability to identify and respond to child sexual abuse.
“We appreciate that the Warren County Child Advocacy Center has been a resource for us, and are grateful to work together with them on behalf of children,” said Spicher. “Their training empowers all of us to be able to make a difference in terms of response and intervention – and most importantly, in the lives of potential child victims.”
Kudos to Mason Schools for taking this tremendous step to protect children and thanks to The CAC of Warren County for all the work they do helping abused children and promoting prevention.
