Mandated Reporting Law
The Agency of Education and Department for Children and Families would like to provide information and support relating to the requirements of Act 1 of 2009 and Act 60 of 2015. You will recall that Act 1 required that all school employees, including non-teaching staff (bus drivers, custodians, food service staff), receive training on the dynamics of sexual abuse and sexual violence. Act 60 also made significant changes to the mandated reporting law.
Both subject areas are addressed in the new online mandated reporting training: Protecting Vermont’s Children: Reporting Abuse & Neglect. We encourage you to utilize this resource in your strategic plan for training school staff.
