Virtual Presentation Regarding Erin's Law Curriculum Set for January 27, 2022

A New York State law known as Erin's Law (Chapter 187 of the Laws of 2019), requires public schools to teach child sexual abuse and exploitation prevention classes to students in kindergarten through eighth grade. Erin's Law is named for Erin Merryn, an abuse survivor and activist against child sexual abuse who has advocated for similar laws nationwide for over a decade. Erin’s Law is intended to help children, teachers, and parents in New York State schools identify sexual abuse, and to provide awareness, assistance, referral, or resource information for children and families who are victims of child sexual abuse.  

We are partnering with the Bivona Child Advocacy Center to help facilitate this important training.  In grades K-5, a trained staff member will teach the required grade level content.  Students in each grade level will receive two lessons and these lessons will be taught across all buildings on a rotating schedule from Feb 8 through May 1.

We will be offering a virtual presentation about this curriculum on Thursday, January 27, 2022 at 7pm. To participate in the virtual presentation, click on the following link at 7pm on January 27:
