AB 1227, approved on October 7, 2017, is also known as the Human Trafficking Prevention Education and Training Act. This law requires that each school district train county leadership, administrators and educators to identify children that have been or may be at risk of being exploited and how to proceed when potential victims are identified. It also requires that schools teach California’s school age population how to avoid becoming victims of exploitation at least once in junior high school or middle school, and at least once in high school.
The Marin County Office of Education has received a generous donation from the Marin Coalition to End Human Trafficking, Soroptomist International of Marin County, and the Marin Covenant Church to support a pilot training and implementation of the PROTECT Curriculum, offered by 3Strands Global Foundation, that meets all requirements of AB 1227 for Human Trafficking education. If you would like to participate in this pilot training, please contact Karen Allen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
