Mandatory Reporting of Child Abuse
An obligation that you have during student teaching is to be alert and aware of possible incidences of child abuse. You are required by law to report such incidences. In order for you to better understand how to recognize child abuse and how to report it, use the resources below.
If the district you have been placed in for student teaching asks you to fill out the Acknowledgement of Mandated Reporter Status form and fax it, find it here.
