A02577 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A2577B
 
SPONSOR: Dinowitz (MS)
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the education law, in relation to requiring a course of study in the prevention of child sexual exploita- tion and child sexual abuse   PURPOSE: Enacts legislation to require the instruction of curriculum on the prevention of child sexual exploitation and child sexual abuse in grades kindergarten through eight.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1: This act shall be known as and may be cited as "Erin's Law". Section 2 Amends Education Law by adding a new section 803-b to provide that courses of study in the prevention of child sexual exploitation and child sexual abuse be received by all pupils in grades K-8. Such program shall be defined by the commissioner in regulations after consultation with the department of health and be designed to educate students, parents and school personnel about the prevention of child sexual exploitation and child sexual abuse in grades kindergarten through eight. Nothing in this section shall prevent the department from making model curriculum and resource materials available on the department's website. The commissioner may provide technical assistance in the development of curricula for such courses of study which shall be age-appropriate and developed according to the needs and abilities of pupils at successive grade levels in order to provide awareness, skills, information, self- confidence and support to aid in the prevention of child sexual exploi- tation and child sexual assault. Section 3 sets the effective date.   EXISTING LAW: Section 305 of the education law established the powers and duties of the commissioner of education.   JUSTIFICATION: Awareness of the epidemic of child sexual abuse has come a long way since section 803-a was enacted in 1994 and quality school safety programs are already evolving to teach children that abduction by stran- gers is not the only, or the most common, danger they face. Like other sex crimes, most child sexual abuse is committed by people who know their victims. Trusted acquaintances are most often the perpetrators, followed by family members and then strangers. Updating the language of New York's education requirement to reflect the current understanding of both the sources and warning signs of child predation will help ensure that more children receive practical and age-appropriate instruction that they can incorporate into their daily lives. As more and more abuse victims of all ages are coming forward to share stories of horrifying abuses, we are regularly reminded of our sacred obligation to prepare the next generation of children to meet life's major challenges. Despite greater openness about these crimes, feelings of shame or stigma still keep many victims and witnesses silent. Many young people suffering abuse or exploitation are still unaware of when and from whom to seek help. Concerned parents may not even know about the latest techniques being used by predators to meet and groom their victims through electronic communications, the Internet and social media. With our growing understanding of the many dangers facing our children and the lifelong injuries sexual abuse and exploitation can inflict, the cost of not providing this vital safety information to students is simply too high.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2017-18: A.3953-A - Held for consideration in Education/S.1953-A - Passed Senate 2015-16: A.90B - Referred to Education/S.1947B - Passed Senate 2013-14: A.661A - Referred to Education/S.2367 - Passed Senate 2011-12: A.8993 - Held for consideration in Education/S.6182 - Passed Senate   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Minimal. The state education department will continue to provide techni- cal assistance to school districts for these age-appropriate curricula.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect on the first of July next succeeding the date on which it shall have become a law. Effective immediately, the addi- tion, amendment and/or repeal of any rule or regulation necessary for the implementation of this act on its effective date are authorized to be made and completed on or before such effective date.
