Memo: Required Checks of the Child Protection Registry

19 December 2019

The Office of the Vermont State Auditor has recently concluded an audit of compliance with Act 1 of 2009 by the Agency of Education (AOE) and supervisory unions/districts (SU/SDs) and independent schools in Vermont. Among the findings, the audit discovered that eleven SU/SDs had not conducted any of the required checks of the Child Protection Registry in 2018. This memo is to remind Vermont’s SU/SDs and independent schools of their duties under the law.

Under 16 V.S.A. § 255(h), superintendents and headmasters are required to conduct checks of the Child Protection Registry and the Vulnerable Adult Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation Registry for any of the following individuals:

  • full-time employees,
  • part-time or temporary employees, 
  • persons directly under contract from an SU/SD who may have unsupervised contact with children, 
  • employees of persons directly under contract with an SU/SD who may have unsupervised contact with children, 
  • student teachers. 

Read the complete memorandum.
