CONNSACS Is Working with the State to Prevent Sexual Violence in Schools

CONNSACS is working with the Department of Children and Families, the State Department of Education, advocates and community members to create a statewide sexual violence prevention plan that will be implemented in grades K-12 across Connecticut.

Connecticut State Legislators recognized that initiating conversations about preventing and recognizing sexual abuse and assault early are most effective.  That is why they passed legislation to ensure that all Connecticut schools will implement comprehensive programming in prevention and awareness of sexual abuse and assault in grades K-12.  CONNSACS is currently working with the Department of Children and Families, the State Department of Education, advocates and community members to compile a framework for what that programming should look like in Connecticut’s schools.  The working group is on track to finish its framework by January 2016 in order to give schools time to implement its recommendations by October 2016.
