Indiana law requires that all schools provide age appropriate and research based instruction on child abuse and child sexual abuse to students in kindergarten through grade 12. Penn-Harris-Madison has partnered with the Youth Service Bureau to provide this instruction.
The PHM School Corporation will be utilizing information from the Teen Lures Prevention as well as Teen Safety Matters curriculum to educate middle school students on a variety of safety issues.
During the first semester, staff from the Youth Service Bureau of St. Joseph County will present about ways youth can prevent, respond to and report all forms of child abuse, dating violence and sexual assault. By talking openly with students about what constitutes healthy and respectful relationships, we prepare young people to better recognize and resist all forms of mistreatment. The presentations will be given either convocation style or via video to individual classrooms.
