Attention Parents - Erin's Law

Parents and Guardians,

Per Ohio Revised Code (3313.60)- Erin's Law, requires each school district in Ohio (Ohio became the 38th state in the nation to enact this law) to provide developmentally appropriate instruction in child sexual abuse prevention for grades K-6 and developmentally appropriate instruction in sexual violence prevention education for grades 7-12. To meet the mandate, Public School Works offers grade level appropriate videos (see links below) that the school can utilize to meet the mandated requirement. Parents can 'opt out' if they wish to do so and I will be sending a parent notice/ letter home with each student to take home to their parents this Thursday, September 7th. The letter is attached. If opting out, please return the signed letter by September 15th. 

The synopsis at the bottom of this e-mail explains the mandate. I have included the video links below, too, per full transparency.

Please do not comment on this post as the option is given to ‘opt out’ plus every school must follow the law per the mandate.

Nick Roberts (Superintendent)

Governor Mike DeWine signed Senate Bill 288 into law on January 3, 2023, mandating that school districts notify parents about required curriculum on child sexual abuse and sexual violence prevention. S.B. 288 altered R.C. 3313.60 to require that children in grades kindergarten through six receive annual developmentally appropriate instruction in child sexual abuse prevention, including information on available counseling and resources for children who are sexually abused. The instruction and information provided cannot be connected in any way to any individual, entity, or organization that provides, promotes, counsels, or makes referrals for abortion or abortion-related services. S.B. 288 further requires that students in grades seven through twelve receive developmentally appropriate instruction in dating violence prevention education and sexual violence prevention education, which must include instruction in recognizing dating violence warning signs and characteristics of healthy relationships.
