Other School Referrals

Child Abuse
The schools shall refer to Cumberland County Children and Youth Services cases of suspected child abuse and such situations shall be telephoned to the Agency immediately as well as being referred by mandated school personnel to the State ChildLine (1.800.932.0313). The Agency will take the responsibility to commence an investigation and contact parents/caregivers. The school shall complete the CY-47 (Report of Suspected Child Abuse) and forward this form to the Agency.

When referring a child because there appears to be a condition of neglect, the school need only call Agency (240.6120) to discuss the information. There is no need to send written referral
