California Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting Act (CANRA)

Under the California Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting Act (CANRA), certain types of employees, known as mandated reporters, must report known or suspected instances of child abuse or neglect that they are made aware of during the course and scope of their employment.

All LACCD employees except student workers are mandated reporters. The District is required to provide you with training in child abuse identification and reporting.
