Act 299 (Pennsylvania General Assembly - December 30, 1970) amends Act 91 (1967) known as The Child Abuse Law (dealing with gross physical neglect or injury to children under eighteen years of age) as follows:
Any school nurse whose examination of a child less than eighteen years of age or any school teacher whose observation of a child less than eighteen years of age discloses evidence of gross physical neglect or injury shall immediately report such an incident.
Any person who makes or participates in the making of a report shall be immune from any liability.
All concerns of abuse will be reported on the Child Abuse Hot Line (1-800-932-0313). This is the law. All teachers, school nurses, and social workers are bound by law to report concerns of neglect or abuse that are brought to their attention.
