All Illinois school districts are now required to provide education to students about child sexual abuse.
More commonly known as Erin’s Law, the goal of this law is to increase awareness of this much too common crime against children.
One of the requirements of this law is that schools provide an age appropriate curriculum to students in preschool through 12th grade related to sexual abuse prevention.
Faith’s Law also amended the Illinois Abused and Neglected Child Reporting Act (“ANCRA”) to add grooming to the definition of abuse.
Accordingly, any mandated reporter who has reasonable cause to believe that the parent, immediate family member, household member, paramour of the child’s parent, or any person responsible for the welfare of a child known to the mandated reporter in their professional or official capacity has engaged in grooming against the child, as defined under the Illinois Criminal Code, must immediately report such belief to the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services.
