Recognizing and Reporting Child Abuse
If a school district wishes to provide Act 48 for professional staff the training must be approved by the Department of Education (PDE) in consultation with the Department of Human Services (DHS). Those holding professional licenses under the Department of State must be training through a DHS approved provider.
Sessions will be open to individuals of our member districts (including regular full/part-time/substitute employees, volunteers and contractors). The $5 non-refundable registration fee is for the required participant workbook and processing. This fee is based upon the current cost of the workbook and any increases will be reflected at the time of registration.
Participants must attend the full 3 hour session to meet the requirements of the mandate.
Training is designed to provide information related to the requirements of mandated reporting of child abuse and neglect as defined by the Pennsylvania Child Protective Services Law.
