Protecting Students During the Pandemic | Keenan

February 17, 2021

Educators have always been at the front lines of detecting and reporting child abuse. Since the Covid-19 pandemic started, cases of child abuse have risen significantly while reports have dropped, making the role of teachers in fighting abuse more critical now than ever.

This webinar, presented by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of California, helps equip teachers and administrators with the tools they need to detect, prevent, and report abuse of their students while teaching remotely during the pandemic. The presentation focuses on internet crimes against children, including trafficking in child sexual abuse material and sextortion, and provides practical advice for teachers working in the online classroom.
