Expect Respect

Currently, we serve Alexandria schools with a curriculum designed for grades five, seven and nine/ten. The Expect Respect curriculum is intended to provide information, support and guidance for school aged students. The objectives of the curriculum are to help students:

  • Define terms associated with sexual harassment, sexual assault, domestic violence and teen pregnancy prevention
  • Recognize destructive and unhealthy patterns of behavior in relationships
  • Set goals and make choices that lead to safety awareness and risk reduction and that value the self and others
  • Recognize the importance of clear communication, assertive behavior and self- respect for establishing and maintaining violence free, healthy relationships
  • Understand the importance of delaying sexual intercourse and choosing behaviors that reduce the risk of teen pregnancy

For more information on the Expect Respect curriculum or to schedule a presentation, please call 703.746.5030 or email kim.hurley@alexandriava.gov.
