Lakewood City School District was awarded a collaborative grant from the U.S. Department of Justice, Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) to address different kinds of power-based personal violence in our schools. The project is in partnership with the Domestic Violence and Child Advocacy Center (DVCAC), the Cleveland Rape Crisis Center (CRCC) and the Lakewood Police Department.
The goal of Ranger 360 is to work with students, parents, teachers, administrators and the community at large to develop a comprehensive school and community based response to sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence and stalking (SADDVS). LCSD. In partnership with our families and community, is committed to promoting safe and healthy relationships and to upholding an expectation of respect for all in order to prevent SADDVS before it happens.
Domestic violence is not just a problem for adults. Teens experience violence in their relationships too. In fact, violence is very common in teen dating relationships. February is nationally known as Teen Dating Violence Awareness month and Lakewood High School will be participants this year.
