The U.S. Department of Education recently announced the availability of two separate development and/or training programs on preventing human trafficking and cybersecurity considerations for schools.

A staff development series on preventing human trafficking is being offered in partnership with the National Center on Safe Supportive Learning Environments. The series is rooted in the latest research and best practices in the field from advocates who seek to prevent human trafficking.

Visit NCSSLE’s website for additional information and to access the series.

The USDOE also announced a new online course on cybersecurity, which explores how to prevent and respond to threats.

Cybersecurity Considerations for K-12 Schools and School Districts is a 30–45-minute free online course that aims to help K-12 school personnel, school district administrators and staff, and state/regional education agency personnel develop a cybersecurity operation plan.
