State Auditor General Finds Many Cyber And Charter Schools Have Outdated Child Abuse Reporting Policies

Pennsylvania’s Auditor General says a vast majority of cyber and charter schools in Pennsylvania are lacking updated child abuse reporting policies. Auditor General Eugene DePasquale says a review by his department found many cyber and charter schools do not have updated policies for reporting suspected child abuse in place. While 80 percent say they will have policies in place this month, DePasquale does not believe that would have happened if his department had not done its review.
