ISBA Announces Child Abuse Reporting Seminar

Friday, July 27, 2018  


When: Friday, August 24, 2018

Where: Ivy Tech Conference Center (2820 N. Meridian St., Indianapolis, IN 46208)

Cost: $230

Recent court decisions and legislative changes have heightened everyone’s awareness of the duty to report suspected child abuse. Yet questions still remain regarding what conduct is required to be reported, who is required to make the report, when is a report required to be made, what is the school administrator’s role in reporting and investigating child abuse or neglect, and what information can be shared between the investigator and the school.

 The ISBA is sponsoring a seminar to address these questions and more. Representatives from the Indiana Department of Child Services will provide in-depth information on the duty to report child abuse and neglect and detail the procedures its employees follow when investigating a report of alleged child abuse or neglect. Additionally, an experienced prosecutor from the United States Department of Justice will review the laws defining the conduct that must be reported. Lastly, attorneys will discuss employment-related issues that might arise when school employees are involved in the violation of the child abuse reporting laws. This seminar is for all building level administrators, central office administrators, human resources directors, school counselors, school board members, and school attorneys.  To register, go to the ISBA website at
