Erin's Law

In 2014 the South Carolina Legislation passed Erin’s Law, as part of Comprehensive Health Education Act (SECTION 59-32-20 (B). The purpose of the law is to ensure that all students Pre-Kindergarten through High School receive this prevention instruction during the academic school year. The intent of the law is to equip students with the knowledge and skills to remain safe from sexual assault and how to make a report if an assault occurs.
Instructional units were written as a resource guide for teachers to implement Erin’s Law. These units are aligned with the South Carolina Academic Health and Safety Education Standards. Lesson content varies from grade to grade. A copy of each lesson is available at your child’s school for you to preview if you choose.
Sometime over the course of each school year your child will be presented one lesson by the school counselor at elementary level . The lesson content is not part of sexuality education and only discusses age appropriate health and safety education.
If you have any further questions after you have previewed the materials please contact your child’s counselor Nicole Bryant-Shamblin 355-3304 or Stephanie Kuss 355-3357. (English / Spanish)
