Action Required for all Volunteers:
House Bill 1176 was recently signed into law and affects our protocol for reporting child abuse and neglect. As a result, all volunteers for our school who work with children must complete a Volunteer Safety Information Form and complete training on Child Abuse and Neglect. The training is a ten minute online presentation outlining your responsibility for reporting child abuse or neglect and the protocol for such reporting.
At the completion of the online training, you will be given an opportunity to print a Certificate of Completion. Your completed Volunteer Safety Information Form, and training certificate, should be submitted to the Administration Office as soon as possible.
As of July 1, 2012, Georgia law states that all school volunteers are now MANDATED REPORTERS and are required to report any suspected child abuse or neglect.
Please find the link labeled Child Abuse and Neglect for the REQUIRED video for all parent volunteers.
After watching the video, please complete the attached Volunteer Abuse Training Verification form, submit it WITH the completed Volunteer Safety Information form and the Abbotts Hill Volunteer form to the front office. (3 separate forms)
Before you volunteer at Northview High School, you must bring the following documents to the front desk There are no exceptions.
This new policy includes all volunteers: sports, performing arts, and PTSA volunteers. If you have questions about the training or the submission of this form, please contact Carol Bybee.
