The ICMEC Education Portal
In 2015 NEASC helped to develop and adopted a set of comprehensive child protection standards that NEASC-accredited and candidate schools must meet. The standards and expectations were developed by the International Task Force on Child Protection (ITFCP) and are based on extensive research conducted in cooperation with the International Center for Missing and Exploited Children (ICMEC).
Resources developed by task force members in order to assist adults who work with children and teens are available on the ICMEC Education Portal. We at NEASC fully support this important work and encourage you to visit the Education Portal for guidance in training staff and volunteers in your educational communities on topics such as awareness and prevention, responding and reporting, creating support networks, and curriculum resources.
This audit framework provided by ICMEC is a resource for schools to consider the structures and systems they have to keep students safe in an online setting:
