Erin’s Law

Week of February 5th, 2018:
House Bill 6193, better known as Erin’s Law, was signed by Governor Pat Quinn on January 24, 2013. This law requires public schools to implement an age-appropriate sexual abuse awareness and prevention curriculum for all students in grades Pre-K – 12. In District 181, we have adopted the Child Lures Prevention Curriculum to meet this mandate. Mrs. Neubauer and your child’s classroom teacher will be teaching a one-time, developmentally appropriate lesson during the week of February 5th, 2018.

The presentation incorporates concepts and skills taken from lessons within the Child Lures Prevention Curriculum that are developmentally appropriate based upon grade levels. The presentation was aligned with learning standards that focus on teaching students basic skills to help keep them safe from abusive or dangerous situations. The presentation emphasizes healthy and safe relationships through interactive activities and discussions. Some concepts discussed during the presentation includes:
Body Awareness Skills
Healthy Choices
Personal Boundaries
Appropriate Relationships
Safety Rules
Self-Advocacy Skills

We have also created a webpage specifically addressing Erin’s Law, with background information and an overview of the curriculum we have adopted. Visit > Resources > Erin’s Law.
