Erin's Law

On January 24, 2013, Governor Pat Quinn signed a new law extending sexual abuse education in Illinois schools.  The Illinois law went into effect immediately and schools are required to implement Erin’s Law during the 2014-2015 school year.  Erin’s Law requires all schools to provide child sexual prevention education for all students, K-12, yearly.  The law also requires educators to take part in training classes that cover sexual abuse and how to recognize warning signs.

Northwest CASA, in conjunction with district social workers will present information regarding personal body safety during the academic school year.

If you would NOT like your child to participate please go to the River Trails School District Site and click on the Parents Menu Tab on the top of the page. This will lead you to the Erin’s Law opt out form.  You can complete this form online at home or at your child’s school office.

If you have any questions prior to the parent meeting, please contact Dr. Miriam Cutler at (224)612-7304 or
