Prevention and Awareness: Human Trafficking of School-Aged Children

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) amended its child abuse prevention, mandatory reporting, and training requirements to include human trafficking in alignment with updates to state law concerning the definition of child abuse and neglect (TAC § 61.1051, Subchapter EE, Commissioner’s Rules on Reporting Child Abuse or Neglect, including Trafficking of a Child).

Training concerning prevention techniques for, and recognition of, sexual abuse, trafficking, and other maltreatment of children including those with significant cognitive disabilities, must be provided as a part of new employee orientation and to existing school staff not previously trained as required by TEC §38.004.

The purpose of this module is to assist and equip educators in meeting the training requirements for the Commissioner's Rule (TAC §61.1051) on reporting Child Abuse, Neglect, including Trafficking of a Child. Each district and open-enrollment charter school must maintain records that include the name of each staff member who participated in training (TAC §61.1051). It is the responsibility of the LEA to track the participation and completion of this training module locally.

Local Education Agencies (LEAs) represent one of the largest professional resources for reporting suspected child abuse in Texas. It is critical for district leadership, educators, and school staff to remain vigilant in their identification and reporting of suspected child abuse, neglect, including the trafficking of a child.

###
9 OnTRACK Grade 8 Math: Expressions, Equations, and Relationships

Students will learn to develop mathematical relationships and make connections to geometric formulas; use geometry to solve problems; use one-variable equations or inequalities in problem situations; and use multiple representations to develop foundational concepts of simultaneous linear equations.

###
5 OnTRACK Grade 8 Math: Two-Dimensional Shapes, Measurement, and Data

Students will learn to develop transformational geometry concepts and to use statistical procedures to describe data.

###
Graphing Proportional Relationships

Given a proportional relationship, students will be able to graph a set of data from the relationship and interpret the unit rate as the slope of the line.

###
Analyzing Scatterplots

Given a set of data, the student will be able to generate a scatterplot, determine whether the data are linear or non-linear, describe an association between the two variables, and use a trend line to make predictions for data with a linear association.

###
Writing Geometric Relationships

Given information in a geometric context, students will be able to use informal arguments to establish facts about the angle sum and exterior angle of triangles, the angles created when parallel lines are cut by a transversal, and the angle-angle criterion for similarity of triangles.

###
Solutions of Simultaneous Equations

Given a graph of two simultaneous equations, students will be able to interpret the intersection of the graphs as the solution to the two equations.

###
Comparing and Explaining Transformations

Given rotations, reflections, translations, and dilations, students will be able to develop algebraic representations for rotations, and generalize and then compare and contrast the properties of congruence transformations and non-congruence transformations.

###
Mean Absolute Deviation

Given a set of data with no more than 10 data points, students will be able to determine and use the mean absolute deviation to describe the spread of the data.

###
Generalizing about Populations from Random Samples

Given a population with known characteristics, students will be able to use a variety of methods to generate random samples of the same size in order to understand how a random sample is representative of a population.

###
Evaluating Solutions for Reasonableness

Given problem situations, the student will determine if the solutions are reasonable.

###
Predicting, Finding, and Justifying Solutions to Problems

Given application problems, the student will use appropriate tables, graphs, and algebraic equations to find and justify solutions to problems.
