Tennessee School Districts are required to provide annual training to faculty and staff. This page contains the information, materials, resources, and procedures that should be used and followed to fulfill this requirement. The target is for all required annual training to be completed by Labor Day of each school year.
Principals/Administrators/Supervisors responsible for conducting each of these trainings should utilize the “Required Annual Training Completion Log/Sign-in Sheet” (print off below) to document that employees required to participate in the training have done so. These logs/sign-in sheets should be kept on file in the office of your building for up to a period of 3 years and a copy should be sent to Georgia Rush at the Claiborne County Board of Education when required annual trainings are complete.

Required School Signage with DCS Contact Information
During the 2016 legislative session, the General Assembly passed Public Chapter 802 which requires all schools to post in a clearly visible location a sign that contains the toll-free telephone number operated by the department of children’s services to receive reports of child abuse or neglect. The department of children’s services has a standard form, which schools can print to meet the requirements of the new law. Please note the form must be printed on paper of eight and one-half inches by eleven inches or larger and must be placed at eye level to the student.
