Supt. Torlakson Joins CTA in Support of Bill to Help Protect Children

 

Supt. of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson is supporting AB 1432, a CTA-backed measure by Assembly Member Mike Gatto (D-Los Angeles). AB 1432 is designed to instruct educators and school personnel on what to do in suspected cases of child abuse and neglect.

Specifically, the measure requires that all certificated and classified school employees of a school district or a charter school are trained annually on child abuse reporting requirements.

The bill also requires the California Department of Education to develop statewide guidelines on the reporting requirements and the responsibilities of those reporting.

Every child deserves a chance to learn and no child succeeds alone.
