Sandy Hook Promise:
The State of Ohio has implemented two new laws to support our students and place emphasis on the importance of emotional and physical safety of students and staff. To create safe and supportive learning environments in Springboro Schools, we will be focusing on Erin’s Law and House Bill 123 (Safety and Violence Education (SAVE Our Students Act) throughout the course of the 2023-2024 year and beyond.
Springboro Intermediate, Springboro Junior High School and Springboro High School students and staff will be focusing on HB123 through the Sandy Hook Promise. Please see more about Sandy Hook Promise below:
ABOUT SANDY HOOK PROMISE
Sandy Hook Promise is a national nonprofit organization led by several family members who lost loved ones at the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting on December 14, 2012. Our sole purpose is to prevent gun violence so that no other parent experiences the senseless, horrific, and preventable loss of their child.
Sandy Hook Promise prevents gun violence by teaching adults and youth how to recognize the signs and signals of individuals who may be at-risk of hurting themselves or others, and how to intervene to get them help. We train youth and adults, at no cost, in four evidence-based “Know the Signs” programs. For more information on Sandy Hook Promise, please visit: www.sandyhookpromise.org.
Under HB123, students in grades 6-12 are required to receive one hour of instruction in social inclusion, one hour of instruction in violence prevention and one hour of instruction in suicide prevention per school year. These topics are crucial for fostering a safe and supportive learning environment, promoting positive relationships among students and equipping them with the knowledge and skills to navigate challenges they will face throughout their lives.
The first lesson, addressing social inclusion, will be on December 7th, 2023. Future dates and topics will be provided in your school’s Principal’s Update.
We recognize parents play a vital role in their child’s education and we value your partnership. We believe that working together with families creates the most supportive environment for our students. However, we understand families may have different comfort levels with this subject matter. If you do not wish for your child to participate in these lessons, please click Here. If you have further questions, please contact Andrea Cook at [email protected].
