MAINE SCHOOL ADMINISTRATIVE DISTRICT NO. 31

SUSPECTED CHILD ABUSE/NEGLECT REPORT FORM


Any person employed through MSAD 31 who suspects that a child has been or is likely to be abused or neglected (the “notifying person”) must immediately notify the building principal and fill out this form. The purpose of this form is to document your reporting and to facilitate confirmation that a report has been made to the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) or, as appropriate to the District Attorney.


If you have not received written confirmation within 24 hours of submitting this form to the building principal, you must make your own report to DHHS or, if appropriate, to the DA.

  • If the alleged perpetrator is the parent or guardian or lives in the home, the report is filed with DHHS. The intake number is 1-800-452-1999.

  • If the alleged perpetrator lives outside of the home and is NOT a guardian, the District Attorney’s office is to be called.

Piscataquis County: 564-2181 Penobscot County: 942-8552


This form is for school use only. It is not to be sent to DHHS.
