|Subject:||Child Protection Task Force County Notification|
|My first co-sponsorship memo on this bill included a very significant omission that I wish to clarify through the underlined words in this co-sponsorship memo.
I plan to introduce a bill to address the recommendations made by the Task Force on Child Protection established by Senate Resolution 250.
My bill would require school districts to notify the county Child and Youth Agency when a child is enrolled in a home school program, cyber charter school, is truant or fails to register for school upon attaining compulsory school age if and only if the child, another household child, household parent or other household person has been the subject of a founded or indicated child-abuse report within the last 18 months.
If such situation exists and such notification is given, the county agency would promptly perform a safety and risk assessment at the household.
