Child Abuse Reporting Training
Portland Public Schools’ Board of Education Instructions to the Superintendent Regarding Child Abuse Reporting Procedures and Sexual Conduct:
- Every year all administrators are directed by the Superintendent to have child abuse reporting procedures presentations and sexual conduct, including taking the online video training, for all Portland Public School employees.
- All school district employees are required to take the training every year.
- Any new public school employee hired shall, within 30 days of their employment, complete the training.
- Central office employees shall complete the training by August 31 each year and school-based employees shall complete the training by September 30 each year.
Every new substitute teacher and teacher candidate must participate in the online child abuse prevention and sexual conduct interactive training.
At the beginning of each school year, returning substitutes (teachers, paraeducators, and secretaries) must participate in the online child abuse prevention and sexual conduct interactive training. If you are not sure if you have fulfilled this obligation, please call the Sub Office and we will give you the date of your last certification.
