This edWebinar will assist school personnel in recognizing signs of child sex trafficking among the students they work with and provide the necessary tools to report suspicions of child sex trafficking. Educators will also learn how to provide students with online safety skills and assist parents with their concerns regarding online behavior of students and potentially unsafe situations. With increased online learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this information is critical in helping school personnel protect their students.
This edWebinar will be of interest to teachers and school leaders of the elementary through high school levels.
