About Our Curriculum: 

SARSSM Prevention & Education offers a preK-12th grade curriculum designed specifically for schools and educators to cover Maine DOE’s 2018 Child Sexual Abuse Prevention and Response Model Policy. This past summer, we have been working closely with The Cutler Institute to ensure our curriculum is evidenced informed, skills based, and sufficiently covers the Maine state learning targets for sexual violence prevention. We trust that educators know their students best and have currently standing curricula that already hit a lot of these targets. Our curriculum is meant to support and strengthen what schools already have, not to replace it. With this, we encourage schools to incorporate our lessons and materials to best fit your classrooms. 

About Our Training: 

This past summer, we have been working with our statewide coalition MECASA on creating a virtual two hour training on the Maine DOE’s mandate, our curriculum, handling disclosures, and supporting students who have experienced sexual abuse. In an effort to make our training more accessible to educators, we have built this training to be at-your-own-pace through teachable.com. In order to access our curriculum and materials, this training is a requirement for whoever is responsible for covering the mandate at your school.
