    Child Assault Awareness and Prevention

    In accordance with R.S. 17:81 Y,  the governing authority of each public elementary and secondary school shall provide age- and grade-appropriate classroom instruction to all students relative to child assault awareness and prevention. Such instruction shall be limited to education on what constitutes abuse or an assault, and how students may safely and confidentially report to a school official the circumstances surrounding any such abuse or assaults. Schools will be presenting information to all students during the school year. Our goal is for students to be able to recognize abuse and learn how to speak out if they need assistance. 

    It is important for parents to become aware of and educated on signs and symptoms of abuse. The resource list and informational tips provided below for parents will act as a gateway to gaining pertinent information.

    Tips for Parents

    • Build Skills with Your Child
      • Teach your child to speak up if something isn't right, be open and honest when communicating, and encourage and teach them to talk about how they feel.
    • Observe Your Child's Behaviors
      • Keep an eye open for changes in your child, notice their actions as they play, and monitor inappropriate words and behaviors. 
    • If You Child Has Been Abused
      • Listen to your child, do your best not to react in an emotional way, do not put the blame on yourself, be supportive and strong, don't treat abuse as a deep dark secret, show them that you believe them so they can trust you, and share information with people who need to be informed.
    • Help for You and Your Child
      • Give your child an opportunity to talk about what happened in a safe environment, choose a counseling provider that is a good fit for you and your child, ask for recommendations, and use provided resources.
