A new Child Abuse Reporting law (AB1432) took effect July 1, 2015.
State law AB1432 now requires that all school district employees be designated “Mandated Reporters” in order to better protect students from abuse. The law requires that all employees of a school district complete mandated reporter training annually, within six weeks of the start of the school year for returning employees and within six weeks of employment for new employees (Education Code 44691(b)2).
The preferred method for all current DJUSD employees with a DJUSD.net email address is to complete the assigned training through Target Solutions. Please click here to access the website.
If you are a current Hourly Employee, Coach, Substitute for DJUSD you may take the training provided by the California Department of Social Services, found on their website at http://educators.mandatedreporterca.com/default.htm Once you have completed the training you may drop off your certificate at the District Office or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
We will also be providing an additional in-person training at Harper Junior High School on Thursday, September 22 at 4:00 p.m., this training will be presented in both English and Spanish.
