Volunteer Mandated Reporter Training
Schools are now required by the State of Georgia to train all volunteers as mandated reporters of child abuse.
In compliance with this law, the Fayette County Board of Education requires ALL school volunteers and chaperones to complete the training. Prior to volunteering or chaperoning, you will need to read the document in Step 1 below that explains the procedures for reporting child abuse.
Once you have read the information in its entirety, please fill out (or update) the volunteer application for the school(s) at which you want to volunteer. At the bottom of that form, check the box acknowledging that you have read the Mandated Reporter training and on what date. Please make sure that ALL of the information required in the form is submitted. With this process, you can offer to volunteer at more than one school with one application, and you will only need to apply once, confirming you have completed the training. Once your school approves your application, you will be able to sign in as a volunteer in the front office kiosk.
If you have questions after viewing the Mandated Reporter Training slides, please contact the front office at your child's school and we will be happy to help. We appreciate the time and dedication of our volunteers, but it is our priority to protect our students.
