Permissive Reporting

Students experiencing abuse, neglect, molestation, or other harm are encouraged to make reports. Additionally, parents, guardians, or other students who suspect the abuse or any other form of harm affecting a student are encouraged to make reports to ChildLine, a 24/7 reporting tool through the Department of Human Services. Students, parents, and guardians are considered permissive reporters. Permissive reporters can make a report whenever they suspect a child is the victim of child abuse. Permissive reporters may report anonymously. Permissive reporters can report by telephone by calling 1-800-932-0313. When reporting suspected child abuse or general child well-being concerns, it is crucial to provide as much information as possible.
