Child Abuse Awareness Training (CAAT)

  • Los Angeles Unified School District teachers, administrators, and staff who educate and care for students face constant challenges when trying to help keep children safer in today's fast-paced world. This site offers easy-to-use child abuse training resources to help address these challenges.

    Abuse of children across the world occurs on a staggering scale. It is estimated that 40,000,000 children are abused each year.

    Much more can be done to protect them, which is why this website, offers LAUSD teachers and administrators a set of tools to help children be safer.
