Are you a mandated reporter?
If you live in Pennsylvania and are responsible for the care, supervision, training, or guidance of a child or children, you ARE a mandated reporter.
If you are wondering what this means for you, join Neighborhood Learning Alliance for this FREE mandated reporter training, as we discuss the legal requirements for mandated reports in Pennsylvania.
