Posted on 02/02/2018
On January 24, 2013, Governor Pat Quinn signed a new law extending sexual abuse education in Illinois schools. The Illinois law went into effect immediately and schools are required to implement Erin’s Law during the 2014-2015 school year. Erin’s Law requires all schools to provide child sexual prevention education for all students, K-12, yearly. The law also requires educators to take part in training classes that cover sexual abuse and how to recognize warning signs.   READ MORE... about Erin's Law Information

Illinois Youth Survey
During the 2017-18 school year, River Trails School District 26 and River Trails Middle School are working together with LINK Together (Wheeling Township Youth Drug and Alcohol Prevention Coalition) and the Center for Prevention Research and Development at the University of Illinois to conduct a survey of Illinois middle school students. The purpose of the Illinois Youth Survey is to better understand Illinois youth risk and protective behaviors as they relate to student problems and academic success. In February 2018, 8th grade students will be asked to complete a survey (with no names or identification numbers) that will be administered by RTMS staff members during the regular school day. If you do NOT want your child to participate, please complete the opt-out form. You can complete this form on paper, online, or at your child’s school office.  READ MORE... about Illinois Youth Survey
