This statute mandates that all regional and local school districts in the state must implement K-12 sexual assault and abuse prevention and awareness programs in their schools.

Imagine being a 15-year-old girl. Some boys in your class are harassing you. You feel unsafe and skip classes. Truancy is a statutory offense, and Child Protective Services may become involved. Under Title IX, you should have access to services and tools to keep you safe, but you do not know this. Instead, you may be suspended, expelled, or pushed into the juvenile detention system.
