Summary

The bill requires, whenever possible, that a report of known or
suspected child abuse or neglect made by a public school official or
employee includes information as to whether the child who is the subject
of the report has an individualized education program (IEP), as defined
in statute.

Unless the child is in imminent danger of child abuse or neglect,
prior to reporting the suspected child abuse or neglect, a public school
official or employee shall request an immediate advisory meeting
concerning the child with a least one person who is a primary teacher or
special education teacher of the child, if applicable, to share information
concerning the child and any IEP or safety plan for the child. Public
school officials or employees are encouraged to provide a child's IEP with
any report of suspected child abuse or neglect made by a public school
official or employee.
The bill authorizes the state board of human services to adopt rules
to include a notation or flag in a report or inquiry that the child who is the
subject of the report or inquiry has been identified as a child who is
neuroatypical.
