Dallas ISD Child Abuse Help Line: 888-572-2873
Dallas ISD employees must report all cases of suspected child abuse or neglect immediately. The failure to report by any person with such knowledge constitutes a Class A Misdemeanor. It is the Child Protective Services' (CPS) position that school personnel should not investigate allegations or suspicions of abuse or neglect. This is a Department of Family and Protective Services's responsibility. As soon as the school employee has pertinent information concerning the alleged or suspected abuse or neglect, a report must be made.
