Statewide K-12 Sexual Assault & Abuse Prevention & Awareness Program Guidelines


Connecticut Department of Children and Families (DCF), Connecticut State Department of Education (SDE) and Connecticut Alliance to End Sexual Violence (The Alliance) would like to thank the volunteers that served with them on the statewide, multidisciplinary working group that developed this guide. In addition to representatives from DCF, SDE and The Alliance, the team had representatives from the Department of Public Health, sexual assault crisis centers across Connecticut, Connecticut Association of Public School Superintendents, Connecticut Association of Boards of Education, children’s mental health professionals, teachers, United Way, numerous Connecticut nonprofit children’s advocacy organizations, and the University of Connecticut. They would also like to acknowledge the advocates and lawmakers who made sexual assault and abuse prevention and awareness a priority through the legislation that led to this effort.
