We commend the victim in the Manchester West case for her bravery in coming forward. Her strength has shed light on the glaring need for schools to improve their prevention efforts and prioritize student safety. It is cases like these that highlight the importance of prevention education in our schools. Each of NH's 13 crisis centers work with schools in their communities to implement age-appropriate prevention programming that aims to give students, faculty, and administrators the necessary tools to keep their student body safe.
As Manchester West officials look ahead to the 2017-18 school year, we strongly encourage them to contact their local crisis center when establishing a plan to prevent future violence, educating their staff on reporting requirements, implementing educational programs, and crafting model policies.
