Since 1965, Connecticut has had a statute designed “to require the reporting of suspected child abuse or neglect” to the Connecticut Department of Children and Families (DCF) by certain individuals who care for or interact with children (described as “mandated reporters”). Teachers have been mandated reporters since 1967. Under the current version of the law, a mandated reporter “shall [make a] report” when he or she has “reasonable cause to suspect or believe” that a child under the age of 18 has suffered abuse, which is defined to include “a condition that is the result of maltreatment, including, but not limited to … sexual molestation or exploitation … emotional maltreatment or cruel punishment.”
