The Superintendent or designee shall immediately make a report by telephone to the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and, if appropriate, the District Attorney (DA), and complete this form. A copy should be provided to the notifying employee for signature and returned to the Superintendent. If the notifying employee has not received a copy of the completed form within 24 hours of informing a school administrator, the Title IX Coordinator, or the Superintendent, the employee shall make an immediate report to DHHS and, if appropriate, the DA, complete the form, and give it to the Superintendent.
