CHILD PROTECTION PROGRAM

Blessed Sacrament School participates the SEED (Safe Environment Every Day) program for grades 1-6 and the "Called to Protect" for Youth program for grades 7 & 8. The SEED program teaches children to identify, respond to, and report situations that might be harmful to them. The "Called to Protect" for Youth program teaches students about boundaries and abuse. Students learn how to respond to violations of these boundaries and how to report abuse. These programs will be taught in our Religion classes.

The mission of these programs is to help ensure the personal safety of children and youth through increased awareness, education, advocacy and action. The goal is to prevent all forms of child victimization by teaching our students how to recognize, interrupt and report inappropriate behaviors and situations.
