Volunteer Training on Reporting Child Abuse and Neglect

All volunteers who regularly support schools and students and those who attend field trips MUST complete the Child Abuse and Neglect volunteer training. This online training module provides guidance for volunteers to help keep students safe. Since the inception of the volunteer training in January 2016, nearly 63,000 volunteers have completed the online training.

Parents or guardians who are employees, contractors or volunteers in schools must follow the MCPS reporting protocol. All MCPS employees, contractors and volunteers are mandated reporters.

The training is required every three years. If volunteer training was taken in:
