Important Information for the GMS Family

Reporting of Child Abuse and Neglect

As of July 1, 2012, Georgia law requires school volunteers to report any suspected child abuse or neglect to the Department of Family and Children Services (DFCS). This law operates in conjunction with current policy which dictates school employees act as mandated reporters. If a volunteer suspects a child is being abused or neglected, he or she should immediately call DFCS Intake at 770-319-3700 to report known information regarding the suspected abuse. For after-hours reporting (weekdays after 5:00, weekends, holidays & furlough days), call Centralized Intake for the State of Georgia at 1-855-422-4453. After making this call, the volunteer should notify the Principal or staff member in charge of the program or facility as soon as possible. The Principal, staff member in charge of the program or facility or designee should assist DFCS in obtaining any necessary follow up information.
