Child Abuse and Neglect Advisory Group

A work group was created in the fall of 2014 to recommend ways for the school system to enhance awareness of child abuse and neglect among parents, staff, and students and improve how MCPS monitors and reports allegations of abuse or neglect. The work group includes MCPS staff, parents, community members, and representatives from Montgomery County Children's Protective Services, the Montgomery County Police Department, and the Montgomery County State’s Attorney’s office. Subcommittees are developing recommendations in several areas, including updating the current MCPS policy and regulation on child abuse and neglect; enhancing annual mandatory training for all staff; compiling best practices for appropriate school response to cases presented; parent education on child abuse and neglect; student education and awareness; and keeping the community involved and aware through open dialogue and communication.
