Child Safety Awareness Curriculum

In partnership with the Office of School Health Programs, the San Francisco Child Abuse Prevention Center (the Prevention Center) has adapted its Child Safety Awareness (CSA) curriculum—consisting of two lessons on safe and unsafe touches, assertiveness, and the development of a support system—for classroom teacher implementation. This revised content can be delivered in two thirty-minute lessons and extended as needed. Content for grades K-3 focuses on safe and unsafe touch as well as connecting with supportive adults. Lessons for grades 4 and 5 include additional content on internet safety and bullying.
