Join Shipman & Goodwin school law attorneys Julie C. Fay and Laura A. Fisher for this complimentary webinar for independent schools and public schools.
This program will explore obligations of school employees under Connecticut’s mandatory reporting law on child abuse and neglect. As this law continues to evolve, so do the responsibilities of teachers, administrators and other school employees to make timely reports of suspicions of abuse and neglect to appropriate authorities.
We will discuss scenarios that trigger reporting, including student to student issues, the mechanics of reporting and best practices for coordinating investigations by the Department of Children and Families, law enforcement and the school. As part of our discussion, this webinar will focus on frequent questions from educators on topics, such as the scope of anonymity, sharing information with parents, and how to respond to sexual misconduct between minors.
