The public has become progressively aware of the rising incidence of abuse and neglect of children. The state of Illinois passed Erin’s Law, which mandates schools to provide age-appropriate sexual abuse/assault and awareness training as well as prevention education to children in grades Pre-K through 12th. Central School District takes this responsibility with all seriousness and realizes the best way to teach children these strategies is through a strong partnership with parents.

Erin’s Law is named for Erin Merryn, an abuse survivor who is now a national advocate for sexual abuse. The website for Erin’s Law can be found at:
