WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — State officials are mandating that child sexual abuse awareness and prevention be taught in schools.
Delaware is joining more than 25 other states that have enacted
legislation requiring the study or development of curricula for
educating teachers, students and parents about personal body safety and
child sexual abuse awareness and prevention.
Legislation being signed Wednesday by Gov. Jack
Markell requires Delaware public schools to implement a curriculum to
educate employees and parents of children in pre-kindergarten through
grade six about personal body safety and child sexual abuse.
The Child Protection Accountability Commission
and Division of Family Services will work with the Department of
Education to develop the curriculum.
The new law also provides for parental
notification of the curriculum and requires school districts to report
annually on implementation.
