Mandatory Reporting

By law, all public school employees are mandatory reporters, which means they are legally required to report any allegation of child abuse or neglect to the Missouri Department of Social Services Children’s Division. The state then conducts a thorough, independent investigation.

Every Ladue Schools staff member completes an annual training called “Smarter Adults, Safer Children,” which teaches employees how to identify inappropriate staff/student conduct and informs staff of their obligation as mandatory reporters.
