When, What, Who, and Why: The Perils, Pitfalls, and Parameters of Mandated Reporting
The State of Connecticut mandates that school personnel report to the Department of Children and Families within certain strictly enforced timeframes all suspected cases of student negligence and abuse. Over the past few years, there have been arrests of, and criminal proceedings against, school administrators and staff for failing to fulfill these reporting obligations. School personnel have been disciplined, and even discharged, for not reporting neglect or abuse. What, however, constitutes negligence, and what is considered abuse? Is sexting reportable? Should parents whose children are systemically absent or tardy be reported? Who is responsible for calling DCF? Can a school employee be sued by parents for making a DCF report? These questions and the practical conundrums faced by school personnel in determining their responsibilities as mandated reporters will be addressed in this presentation.

This workshop is FREE for CAS member schools. The registration fee for non-member schools is $29 per person. If you aren’t sure if your school is a CAS member, please email Cheryl Novicelli at cnovicelli@casciac.org.
