"Erin's Law" Parent Info Sessions

Posted on: February 2, 2024
Parent Meeting


In December of 2022, Ohio’s 134th General Assembly enacted Erin’s Law (Senate Bill 288) which included requirements for student instruction, parent and legal guardian notification, and training for school personnel on sexual abuse prevention and dating violence prevention.  The law went into effect on April 4, 2023.  Students in grades K-6 are required to have one hour of training on sexual abuse prevention annually, and students in grades 7-12 are required to have one hour of training on dating and sexual violence prevention once during their 7-12th grade years, which we will include in the High School Health curriculum.  We have partnered with the Council on Child Abuse (COCA) for this training.  Please click HERE to read the letter from COCA regarding the training overview that will be presented to students.   

We will be holding a parent information session on Monday, February 12th at 7:00 PM for ELEMENTARY PARENTS in the Activity Center Auditorium for parents to hear from the presenters about the content that will be included in the student presentations.  The meeting for SECONDARY PARENTS will take place at 7:30 PM.  There will be an opportunity for parents to ask questions at the end of the information session. 

If parents feel that the information might cause their child to become very upset or trigger memories from a past or recent trauma, there is an opt-out letter that will be coming out prior to the student presentations.  Parents must indicate their desire to opt their child(ren) out of the presentation in writing by signing and turning in the district opt-out form to their child’s principal.
