Issues of Abuse

NEWESD 101 no longer offers these classes. If you have received your Masters or your Administrators certificate, taken either an Administrators or Educators Law class at the university or college level, you most likely have already taken a class in which the issues of abuse topics were covered.

You may have taken a class that meets OSPI's description of the topics, but it wasn't called "Issues of Abuse." OSPI's description is: "The candidate must have taken coursework in issues of abuse, which must include information related to identification of physical, emotional, sexual, and substance abuse; the impact on learning and behavior; the responsibilities of a teacher to report abuse or to provide assistance to victimized children; and methods of teaching about abuse and its prevention."

If you still need a class, you may want to try the following:
