The State of Georgia recently passed a law expanding the listing of persons who are now categorized as mandated reporters of child abuse and neglect. This list now includes anyone who volunteers in a school.
To ensure that all school volunteers are aware of the new responsibilities and penalties associated with non-compliance, ALL VOLUNTEERS ARE REQUIRED BY LAW to go through a brief training presentation created by DeKalb County Schools on the mandatory reporting of abuse and neglect and what it means to be a mandated reporter.
The training MUST be completed before volunteering. You must also complete the form below affirming that you have watched the video presentation and understand your obligations as a mandated reporter.
If you have any questions regarding the presentation or your obligations as a reporter, please contact the school's social worker.
