The “Helping Schools Protect Our Children Act,” allows states and school districts to use federal grants to provide professional development to school personnel regarding how to recognize child sexual abuse. These personnel include: teachers, principals, specialized instructional support personnel, and paraprofessionals. The Act was first introduced in 2013, by Senator Feinstein and reintroduced by Representative Takano in 2014. Both bills died in Congress.
