Ethics in Education

Senate Bill 1712, the Ethics in Education Act, became effective July 1, 2008, and impacts certain operational procedures for private schools participating in the McKay and Corporate Tax Credit Scholarship Programs. This Act adds new requirements to the employee screening process, school accountability to develop standards of ethical conduct, procedures for reporting misconduct, and mandatory reporting of child abuse, abandonment, and neglect.

 

Altamonte Christian School employees have an obligation and legal responsibility to report misconduct by instructional personnel and school administrators which affects the health, safety or welfare of a student. Report to one of the following administrators in person or by phone:

 

Pastor Scott Carlson, Executive Director

Mrs. Denille Brownlee, Director

Mrs. Pam Piorkowski, Director of Academics

 

Altamonte Christian School employees have a duty to report actual or suspected cases of child abuse, abandonment, or neglect. Employees have immunity from liability if they report and will have a duty to comply with child protective investigations. The statewide toll-free abuse hotline number is 1-800-962-2873
