Human trafficking prevention, the possible funding of teacher effectiveness programs at two charter schools, and a report about Cooper Elementary are on the agenda when Vacaville Unified leaders meet tonight in Vacaville.
Kim Forrest, assistant superintendent of student services, and Ramiro Barron, director of student attendance and welfare, will offer information about Assembly Bill 1227, the Human Trafficking Prevention, Education, and Training Act, signed by Gov. Jerry Brown last fall.
Among the points they will make during their slide presentation are periodic instruction for middle and high school students about the nature of human trafficking; periodic staff training about human trafficking, including sexual abuse and how it can be prevented; a calendar of instruction dates and locations; required topics of instruction, including the nature of sexually transmitted diseases; parenting, adoption and abortion; the importance of prenatal care; information about sexual harassment, sexual assault and strategies to prevent them; and information about adolescent relationship abuse and intimate partner violence, including early warning signs.
