On July 1, 2012, Georgia law changed to include school volunteers in the group of people who are required to report any case of suspected child abuse or neglect. With these changes, school districts can better protect children and ensure their safety and well-being. Like teachers, administrators, guidance counselors, social workers, and other school employees, school volunteers – because they frequently come in contact with children during their volunteer duties – are now considered “mandated reporters.” A mandated reporter is someone who must notify the Fulton County Department of Family and Children Services (DFCS) within 24 hours if he/she suspects a child is being abused or neglected. Fulton County has developed a training video that must be viewed by all volunteers prior to their interactions with students. Please be advised this training video contains sensitive content and you may wish to view it away from children.
