Mission


 

 

The Division of Student Services is coordinating the District’s efforts to protect our students against sexual abuse through the education of students, parents, and other stakeholders on recognizing the signs of abuse as well as knowing how to advocate on behalf of victims. Below you will find curriculum programs and resources which school based mental health services providers, teachers, and parents are encouraged to use to teach students about recognizing inappropriate behavior and ensuring that students always feel safe and comfortable.
