Mbf Child Safety Matters Review

The curriculum is designed for students in kindergarten through sixth grades, and will soon expand to include the seventh and eighth grades.  MBF Child Safety Matters™ is supported by state and national experts, leaders and agencies in the education and prevention fields, in addition to aligning with numerous Florida Education Standards, the Jeffrey Johnston Stand Up for All Students Anti-Bullying Act, and Florida Statute 39.

"The Monique Burr Foundation for Children believes that all children have the right to be safe," said Lynn Layton, executive director of the Monique Burr Foundation for Children.  "The validation that MBF Child Safety Matters™ has received from the Florida State University evaluation, in addition to other credible professional sources, is very exciting and is an affirmation that our program is positively impacting youth. This program should be in every school, because every child deserves to be safe!"

This program involves the family or other support systems in the individual's treatment: Personnel at the school where MBF Child Safety Matters is implemented are shown a PowerPoint presentation containing the information the students learn and are welcome to do the online training (see training section below).

MBF Child Safety Matters™ is currently approved in 56 of 67 counties in Florida and has trained more than 1,300 school facilitators, reaching more than 1 million students since its inception, however we need to reach more. According to the National Child Traumatic Stress Network, one in four children attending school has been, or will be, exposed to a traumatic event that can affect learning or school behavior. Childhood trauma is associated with lower grade point averages, higher school absence rates, increased drop-out rates, suspensions and expulsions, as well as reading difficulties.

The MBF Child Safety Matters™ program is approved for use in 56 out of 67 Florida counties, is provided at no cost to the Florida public schools and is aligned with Florida Education Standards, meets the qualifications of the Jeffrey Johnston Stand Up for All Students Anti-Bullying Act and Florida Statute 39.
