    Protecting Students During the Pandemic: 

    Detecting, Preventing, and Addressing Child Abuse in the Online Classroom

    For:  Teachers, Counselors, Administrators, and all interested educators

    Description: 

    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 Federal Bureau of Investigation and the United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of California, will 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 will focus on internet crimes against children, including trafficking in child abuse material and sextortion, and will provide practical advice  for teachers working in the online classroom.
