Description of Proposed Guidance Document Changes
At its March 18, 2021, business meeting, the Board of Education approved the revisions to the Child Abuse and Neglect Recognition and Intervention Training Curriculum Guidelines. These guidelines were last approved in 2003 in compliance with ยง 22.1-298.1 of the Code of Virginia. The legislation requires persons seeking initial licensure as teachers and persons seeking licensure renewal as teachers for the first time to complete study in child abuse recognition and intervention in accordance with curriculum guidelines developed by the Board in consultation with the Department of Social Services. Revisions to the Child Abuse and Neglect Recognition and Intervention Training Curriculum Guidelines are proposed to reflect amendments to Virginia legislation (HB 2597 (2019), SB 1661 (2019), SB 706 (2020), HB 1242 (2008), HB 2193 (2013), SB 1117 (2018), SB 184 (2018), HB 150 (2018)) and to align with current terminologies and best practices. Specifically, the proposed revisions include reorganization of learning objectives for clarity purposes, updating types of child abuse and types of responses to include human trafficking, and aligning with systems of care and trauma-informed strategies for social services interventions.
