Delaware Announces New Mandate for Child Sexual Abuse Awareness and Prevention in Schools

Categories: General News, Home

The state of Delaware continues to be a leader in child sexual abuse prevention. The state has joined more than 25 states that require prevention and awareness training for school officials, teachers and parents.

The legislation, which was signed on August 10th by Gov. Jack Markell, requires Delaware public schools to implement a curriculum to educate employees and parents of children in pre-kindergarten through grade six about personal body safety and child sexual abuse. The new law also provides for parental notification of the curriculum and requires school districts to report annually on implementation.
