Training Requirement All instructional personnel and administrators are required as a condition of

employment to complete training on these standards of ethical conduct.

 

Reporting Misconduct by Instructional Personnel and Administrators All employees and

administrators have an obligation to report misconduct by instructional personnel and school

administrators which affects the health, safety, or welfare of a student. Examples of misconduct

include obscene language, drug and alcohol use, disparaging comments, prejudice or bigotry, sexual

innuendo, cheating or testing violations, physical aggression, and accepting or offering

favors. Reports of misconduct of employees or administrators should be made to Debra Natale,

Executive Director.

Legally sufficient allegations of misconduct by Florida certified educators will be reported to the

Office of Professional Practices Services. Policies and procedures for reporting misconduct by

instructional personnel or school administrators which affects the health, safety, or welfare of a

student are posted in the break room and on our Web site at www.newleaps.org.

 

Reporting Child Abuse, Abandonment or Neglect All employees and agents have an affirmative

duty to report all actual or suspected cases of child abuse, abandonment, or neglect. Call 1-800-96-

ABUSE or report online at: http://www.dcf.state.fl.us/abuse/report/.

Signs of Physical Abuse The child may have unexplained bruises, welts, cuts, or other injuries,

broken bones or burns. A child experiencing physical abuse may seem withdrawn or depressed,

seem afraid to go home or may run away, shy away from physical contact, be aggressive, or wear

inappropriate clothing to hide injuries.

 

Signs of Sexual Abuse The child may have torn, stained or bloody underwear, trouble walking or

sitting, pain or itching in genital area, or a sexually transmitted disease. A child experiencing sexual

abuse may have unusual knowledge of sex or act seductively, fear a particular person, seem

withdrawn or depressed, gain or lose weight suddenly, shy away from physical contact, or run away

from home.

Signs of Neglect The child may have unattended medical needs, little or no supervision at home,

poor hygiene, or appear underweight. A child experiencing neglect may be frequently tired or hungry,

steal food, or appear overly needy for adult attention.

Patterns of Abuse: Serious abuse usually involves a combination of factors. While a single sign may

not be significant, a pattern of physical or behavioral signs is a serious indicator and should be

reported.

Liability Protections Any person, official, or institution participating in good faith in any act

authorized or required by law or reporting in good faith any instance of child abuse, abandonment, or

neglect to the department or any law enforcement agency, shall be immune from any civil or criminal

liability which might otherwise result by reason of such action. (F.S. 39.203)
