Alaska Safe Children’s Act is a law that states that all students need to be exposed to certain topics and conversations in grades K-12.
According to AS 14.30.355 Sexual Abuse & Sexual Assault Awareness & Prevention, "The governing body of each school district shall adopt and implement a policy, establish a training program for employees and students, and provide parent notices relating to sexual abuse and sexual assault awareness and prevention for students enrolled in grades kindergarten through 12."
