325 ILCS 5/4from Ch. 23, par. 2054


Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Abused and Neglected Child Reporting Act. Provides that "school personnel" who are mandated reporters of child abuse or neglect include administrators and both certified and non-certified school employees. Provides that any school board member who has actual knowledge that a child enrolled in the school district of which he or she is a board member is an abused child as defined in the Act shall immediately report that knowledge to DCFS or cause such a report to be made to DCFS. Provides that within one year after the effective date of this amendatory Act or within one year after becoming a mandated reporter, whichever is later, a person mandated to report suspected abuse or neglect under the Act must do one of the following: (1) read the requirements of the Act concerning mandated reporters, or read a document prepared by or approved by DCFS concerning child abuse and neglect and the making of reports under the Act; or (2) sign a statement, on a form prescribed by or approved by DCFS, to the effect that the person understands his or her responsibilities as a mandated reporter. Makes it a Class 4 felony to fail to make a report to DCFS after receiving 2 or more reports of the same act, incident, or occurrence of child abuse or neglect. Effective immediately.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces the bill's amendatory provisions concerning school board members; provides that if an allegation is raised to a school board member during the course of a school board meeting that a child who is enrolled in the school district is an abused child, the member must direct or cause the school board to direct the superintendent of the district or other equivalent school administrator to comply with the requirements of the Abused and Neglected Child Reporting Act concerning the reporting of child abuse (instead of providing that a school board member who has actual knowledge of child abuse shall immediately report that knowledge to the Department of Children and Family Services or cause such a report to be made to the Department). Deletes the bill's amendatory changes concerning criminal penalties for violations of the Act's reporting requirements.

House Committee Amendment No. 2
Deletes amendatory provisions requiring a mandated reporter to (1) read the requirements of the Act concerning mandated reporters or read a document prepared by or approved by DCFS concerning child abuse and neglect and the making of reports under the Act or (2) sign a statement that the person understands his or her responsibilities as a mandated reporter.
