School district employees are required by law to report any suspected incidents of abuse, neglect, or exploitation of students. And along with protecting our young people from those incidents comes a responsibility to educate those in charge of our kids on how to handle these types of situations.
The newly revised TargetSolutions course, Reporting Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of Children, will do just that. The course covers signs of an abusive situation, how to respond if you suspect abuse, neglect, or exploitation, appropriate interaction with students, and what to do if a fellow staff member seems to be acting inappropriately.
"TargetSolutions has courses that help train some pretty important people – firefighters, EMTs, police officers," said Content Architect Jeremy Lynch. "But the parent in me thinks you'd be hard pressed to find a course in our catalog that's more important than this one."
This new course isn't the only update the School Districts section of the catalog will be receiving, however. Two new titles – Special Education: Proper Use of Seclusion and Restraint and FERPA: Privacy for Students – are expected to be released in the coming weeks.
"Looking out for the children in our communities is everyone's responsibility," said Kelly Zielinski, who serves as TargetSolutions' risk pool business unit manager. That's why we're excited to be able to deliver these new courses that empower educators with the information and training they need to make our schools safer.
Our newest revised course, Reporting Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of Children, gives our users the tools they need to confidently identify and react in difficult situations where a child's well-being is in jeopardy.
