Child Abuse and Neglect Orientation
Protecting children and youth is everyone’s responsibility.
At Cedars, it has always been our practice that all paid staff and volunteers that are working with vulnerable persons (children and youth) complete a vulnerable sector Criminal Record Check. To further protect the children and youth in our care from abuse and/or neglect, we now require all staff and volunteers that work with our students to orient themselves in the types and signs of child abuse and neglect, steps to follow in the case of student disclosures, and the duty to report.
Please take time to complete this orientation if you plan to work with children and youth enrolled at Cedars Christian School. A record of this completed form will be filed digitally and shared with staff and administration for insurance and planning purposes. Orientation must be renewed every five years.
Thank you for your time and investment in the health and safety of our children and youth!
