Senator Andrew Dinniman created a frightening call out in legislative form. His first sponsorship memo states this:
Child Protection Task Force County Notification Act – Senate Bill 32 of 2013
While most students are seen by a teacher during the school days many non-traditional or home-schooled children are not.
This bill would require a school district to notify the county Children and Youth Agency when a child is enrolled in a home-schooled or cyber-school program. The County Agency would then be required to do a risk assessment to determine whether or not a risk of child abuse exists.
This legislation would directly address recommendations made by the Task Force on Child Protection established by Senate Resolution 250 of 2011.
