Ethics in Education Policies and Procedures for Employees
Trinity Catholic High School considers the safety of our children to be of utmost concern. As an entity within the Diocese of Orlando, we follow all guidelines with respect to Safe Environment Training as required by the United States Catholic Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB). All school personnel (teachers, administrators, staff) complete Safe Environment Training in addition to a Criminal Background/Fingerprint clearance.
In addition, as required by Florida Statutes Section 1006.061(1) and (2), we post notices that (1) all employees and agents of this school have an affirmative duty to report all actual or suspected cases of child abuse, abandonment or neglect and (2) the policies and procedures for reporting misconduct by educational support employees, instructional personnel, or school administrators and other staff.
Finally, all instructional personnel, educational support employees and Administrators are required to be trained on the Ethics in Education Policies and Procedures Standards, including:
- their affirmative duty to report all actual or suspected cases of child abuse, abandonment or neglect
- their affirmative duty and legal responsibility to report abuse or professional misconduct affecting the health, safety, and welfare of a student, and
- their immunity from civil liability when reporting such abuse in good faith.
A signed acknowledgment of such training is included in each personnel file.
