Explanation of Required Volunteer Training
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 repeated annually.
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.
