Child Abuse and Neglect

All tutors and lead tutors are mandated reporters, meaning that they are required by law to report any suspicion of child abuse or neglect.

Suspicions of abuse or neglect must be brought to the attention of site coordinators immediately. Tutors and lead tutors should not contact the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families (DCF) directly. Site coordinators are responsible for contacting the proper authorities.

Lead tutors should address this issue with site coordinators in order to be sure of site policies. Site policies should be clearly communicated to the tutor teams at the beginning of each semester.

Tutors and lead tutors should seek assistance from the program coordinators if they have any concerns about this issue.
