When reporting, fill out BVSD's Child Abuse/Child Protection Report Form. It includes much of the information the agency will need to follow up on the report.
Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting
If you have reasonable cause to know or suspect that a child has been subjected to abuse or neglect or have observed the child being subjected to circumstances or conditions that would reasonably result in abuse or neglect, immediately report it to:
- Law enforcement
- Child protective services
- Colorado's Child Abuse and Neglect Hotline
See How Do I Report below for phone numbers.
The Colorado Child Abuse and Neglect Hotline, 1-844-CO-4-KIDS (1‑844‑264‑5437), is available 24 hours a day, every day.
Under Colorado state law, educators are mandatory reporters, which means they must immediately report possible cases of child abuse and neglect.
