Be the Reason: The Educator's Role in Combating Child Maltreatment

Laws have evolved along with awareness of human rights, including the rights of minors, with increased protections for children and youth from harmful situations. Often children may not be able to put their experiences into words, or may not know they deserve safety and the fulfillment of basic human needs. Children may rely on adults outside the family to stand up for them. This is where educators and school personnel serve a vital role in our society: to watch over and shield our children and youth.

In this course, Sherry Williamson, Child Abuse Project Coordinator at the Arkansas Commission on Child Abuse, Rape and Domestic Violence, shares personal stories and professional insights that compel Arkansas educators and school staff to move beyond the discomfort that comes with facing hard realities. This fully narrated and interactive training features scenarios drawn from real-life experiences. We glean first-hand insights from Arkansas leaders who work to combat crimes against children. Armed with awareness, knowledge, and a sense of higher purpose, Arkansas educators and school personnel can be resolved in in their convictions to “be the reason” children, youth, and families survive and thrive.

This course meets the requirements of Act 1236 of 2011 for the 2021-22 school year.

Recognizing and Reporting Child Abuse

Only a small percentage of students actively disclose abuse. The goal of this course is to combat that by fostering an understanding of the process for disclosure and the ways in which a child might disclose abuse. Janice McCutcheon-Beaver, Director of the Cooper-Anthony Mercy Child Advocacy Center, and Kathy Helpenstill, Forensic Interviewer at the White County Children's Safety Center, co-present detailed information on the stages of disclosure, considerations for talking to a child, and the many ways in which a reporter can maintain open and honest communication during disclosure.

This course was taped on March 20, 2015 at the AETN studios in Conway, Arkansas.

Professional Licensure Standards Board (PLSB) - The Code of Ethics Training Video (2018)

The Code of Ethics for Arkansas Educators defines the minimum standards of ethical conduct for all educators. The State Board of Education approved the standards on September 1, 2008 and they were last updated at the beginning of the 2018/2019 school year. Arkansas law mandates that everyone with a valid Arkansas teaching license and all educators teaching under an Act 1240 waiver and pre-service teachers are required to abide by the Code of Ethics for Arkansas Educators. Educational leaders from across the state join Eric R. James from the Professional Licensure Standards Board (PLSB) to explain what it means to be an ethical educator and abide by the Code of Ethics for Arkansas Educators.

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education.

In this course, Daniel Collier, Technology Projects Coordinator for the Arkansas Department of Education addresses the FERPA basics, explores requirements for the protection of student records for Local Education Agencies (LEAs), explains who may and may not access student records, when those records may be shared, and discusses several of the applicable exceptions to the FERPA requirement for consent.
