Nearly 10% of high school students surveyed said they were sexually abused at school at some point during their school career by either another student or a school representative. The impact on victims’ physical, mental, and emotional health can be devastating and lifelong, and districts are being held accountable resulting in significant financial settlements. This webinar will educate and empower district and insurance leaders to develop an effective child sexual abuse prevention strategy that will lower the risk of student sexual abuse, and limit school liability in the unfortunate case that abuse does occur.
Topics covered in this webinar include:
- The prevalence of child sexual abuse and the impact on victims, districts, and the community.
- The risky behaviors that are often apparent before a child molester sexually abuses a student.
- Best practices and the proactive steps districts can take in the short-term to prevent student sexual abuse in and through their programs.
- Strategies for using online training to support ongoing dialog about this important topic and increase the focus on prevention.
