Abuse and Neglected Child Reporting

On June 27, 2012 the Abused and Neglected Child Reporting Act 325 ILCS 5 was amended to include personnel of institutions of higher learning as mandated reporters in the state of Illinois HB3887. As a person working for Eastern Illinois University, you are now a mandated reporter of child abuse and neglect.

All employees are required to sign the DCFS (ANCRA) form acknowledging this responsibility.

This is a one-time requirement.
