BODY SAFETY/ABUSE PREVENTION EDUCATION PARENTAL PERMISSION LETTER
In accordance with legislation that went into effect beginning in the 2016-2017 school year, John Hancock Charter School students will be participating in body safety and abuse prevention training during the week of December 11-15th with presentations on December 13th & 14th. We have chosen to use Prevent Child Abuse Utah (PCAU) as our body safety and prevention training provider.
The PCAU school-based body safety and abuse prevention training addresses all aspects of child abuse including sexual abuse, physical abuse, emotional abuse and neglect. The program consists of classroom discussion, visual aids, videos and other interactive activities such as role playing. The content focuses on specific core curriculum objectives designed to increase a student’s knowledge about what constitutes child abuse. Students learn why, where and how to report child abuse, as well as safety strategies and who they can talk to if they, or someone they know, is being abused. The PCAU curriculum is approved by the Utah Board of Education and Utah Department of Human Services.
For more information about this training you may contact the school principal or school counselor.
If you do not want your child to take part in the body safety and prevention training please complete the form below and return to your child’s teacher no later than December 8, 2017.
