DANVILLE, Ill. (WCIA) — Several parents are asking the school district to help students access more resources in case of sexual abuse.

It’s after 28-year old Chelsea Robinson was accused of having a sexual relationship with a 17-year old male student at Danville High School.

Some parents are concerned students don’t have a way to report abuse. It’s not just because of Robinson either.

David Woodrow is charged with aggravated criminal sexual abuse. He was frequently seen with his wife at Northridge Middle School for show choir.

Jamie Norton says she and several other parents want the district to put resource numbers in the bathroom. This way, victims who are scared to talk to a school employee can still reach out for help.

Statistics show other students may have also been abused.
