Reviewers should list reports by date, per child, and per allegation. If the same child had multiple allegations that resulted in separate dispositions, each allegation should be indicated in a separate row in the table so that the disposition can be noted for each allegation. If multiple allegations received the same disposition, all allegations may be indicated in the same row. When tallying the number of reports in responding to questions A, B, and C, reviewers should not count each allegation or child as a separate report, but rather consider the date of the report as a distinct report made to the agency.
Children are, first and foremost, protected from abuse and neglect.
