[Libs-Or] Mandatory Reporting Sample Policy Available

Having read both HB 4016 and DHS doc.4016 several times, one question immediately springs to mind.  
Within the definitions of  "public or private official," over twenty occupations are listed (firefighter, optometrist, member of the clergy, etc.).  
Neither document contains language using the word library, librarians, library assistant, page, clerk.

In a field so closely connected to children's services, can anyone explain why the draftees failed to include the word library?
This glaring omission is perplexing.

I will  try to attend this breakout session at the SDAO Conference in February, as may others in library districts.  After the conference we can share the information we get from this session.  I am assuming that the sample policy will be available at the session.

Mandatory Reporting Sample Policy Available

Effective January 1, 2013, Oregon state law (HB 4016) expands the categories of employees that are considered “mandatory reporters”  to make reports to law enforcement or the Department of Human Services if they have reasonable cause to suspect abuse or neglect of a child. 
Risk Management Staff will be presenting a session with handouts at the 2013 SDAO Conference on Saturday, February 9 from 8:30 to 10:30 am.  Visit the SDAO website to register for the conference.
If you believe your district is a mandatory reporter and would like a sample policy or have questions, contact SDAO Loss Control at 800-285-5461 ext. 111.
