Abuse and Neglect Reporting Law Has Changed

Know and Tell

Did you know that State Law requires any person who suspects that a child under the age of 18 has been abused or neglected to report the suspicion immediately to the Division for Children, Youth and Families? No one can delegate this reporting to anyone else, but must contact DCYF directly. The District is currently in the process of updating Policies to align with this change; first and second readings of adjusted Policies are expected to take place in November. Please take careful note. The health and safety of every student is our very highest concern.
