Director of Curriculum Dr. Catherine Wang provided the Board with an update on work the district has been doing in compliance with Erin’s Law.
The law is named after Erin Merryn, who grew up in Illinois and was the victim of sexual abuse. Since then, Merryn had made it her mission to spread the word about ways to prevent sexual abuse from happening. Gov. Pat Quinn signed the act into law in Feb. 14, 2011 — over three years later, 19 states have adopted Erin’s Law, with 18 others having introduced it in their legislatures in 2013 and 2014.
