Child Find

Please review the information and power point and take the short quiz.

What is Child Find?

The intent of Child Find is that all children from birth through age 21 with delays or disabilities are identified, located and evaluated to receive the supports and services they need.

Arizona public schools and the Arizona Early Intervention Program are responsible for “finding” eligible children and providing services needed for them to reach their developmental milestones or meet their educational needs.

When children are “found”, they are referred to a specialist to screen their development. The screening helps “identify” any areas of concern that need to be evaluated further. In order to receive early intervention or special education services, a child must be evaluated to confirm they have a delay or disability that falls under State definitions.

Reporting Abuse

Reporting Child Abuse

Reporting Requirements

Objectives for this training:

  • Review the power point
  • Know the District policy governing employees in regard to reporting suspected child abuse
  • Know what Child Protective Services can do at your school
  • Comprehend your responsibility between a child reporting to you and your acting on your suspicions based on markings, bruising, injuries or changes in the behavior of a student.
  • Complete the Responding to Child Abuse Quiz with 100% mastery

When a teacher or other school personnel observes bruising, injury, markings, or unusual behavior that may be the result of abuse or neglect, the person shall ask the same four questions of the child if necessary.

1. What happened?

2. When did it happen?

3. Where were you when it happened?

4. Who did this?

All observations of suspicious bruising or markings shall be reported to the school Principal.

During the process of obtaining verbal evidence, and notifying authorities there are protocols to observe. Avoid:

  • Interviewing the child yourself or even asking too many questions. If the child approaches you with the information, adhere to the four questions. Unnecessary questioning or interviewing of the child victim may contaminate the investigation and create additional trauma for the child.
  • Promising the child not to tell anyone.
  • Promising the impossible. School personnel should not make any promises to the child that cannot be guaranteed. For example, “you won’t have to testify,” “no one will go to jail,” et cetera.
  • Sharing information with others who do not need to know.
  • Speaking to the alleged perpetrator.
  • Notifying anyone other than authorities. School personnel are not to notify parents or other school staff members that a report has been made.
  • Advising parents or guardians. If the parent or guardian calls or comes to the school in an effort to locate a child being interviewed, sheltered, or removed from school grounds, the child abuse coordinator should refer the parent or guardian to Child Protective Services or the local enforcement agency for information.
  • Delaying making the call in order to discuss at length with others— If you suspect abuse, report it quickly. In many cases, time is of the essence.
