ACEs are serious childhood traumas that result in toxic stress that can harm a child’s brain.
This toxic stress may prevent a child from learning, from playing in a healthy way with other children, and can result in long-term health problems.

Dear Mat-Su Central Parents,
To increase awareness and reduce the prevalence of sexual violence, Alaska has passed legislation called the Alaska Safe Children’s Act, otherwise known as Erin’s Law and Bree’s Law. AS 14.30.355
(Erin’s Law) requires that the governing body of each school district adopt and implement a policy, establish a training program for employees and students, and provide parental notices relating to sexual abuse and sexual assault awareness and prevention for students enrolled in grades kindergarten through twelve.AS 14.30.356
(Bree’s Law) requires that the governing body of each school district adopt and implement a policy, establish a training program for employees and students, and provide parental notices relating to dating violence and abuse in grades seven through twelve. A training program adopted under this section must emphasize prevention and awareness.
To meet the requirements of the Alaska Safe Children’s Act, Mat-Su Central would like to partner with you as your child’s primary home educator.
Please click on the following links in order to access the District’s curriculum resources designated to provide the appropriate lessons for each grade level.

We currently have several of the children’s books and teen health curriculum listed in these links available for you to check-out in our counseling office. If we can be of assistance please reach out to a member of our school’s counseling team (Tara Moore, Deb Haynes, or Michelle Boyden) at 352-7450.
