Child Abuse Reporting Procedures for Parents and Guardians

As educators, our most important duty is the protection of the children in our care. California Education Code requires the California Department of Education to adopt guidelines parents and guardians can follow to report child abuse.  The following information, sent March 5, 2014 to California school districts from State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Tom Torlakson, will assist parents and guardians in determining whether or not child abuse has occurred and, if so, how to file a complaint of child abuse with local law enforcement. This information has been taken from the California Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting Act in the California Penal Code and from sections of the California Education Code. The guidelines and procedures can be accessed online HERE.
