Sexual assault and teen dating violence prevention education are critical to successful academic and health outcomes for youth. However, when schools and communities must prioritize limited resources, these topics often get lost. This facilitated discussion will explore how to maximize resources and promote violence prevention programs within the contexts of the state statute that supports comprehensive sexuality education (House Bill 1292) as well as the state academic content standards for comprehensive health education. We will discuss strategies to use these guidelines to build stronger cross-issue collaborations, and the role of community-based organizations in making curriculum recommendations to school districts.
