Safe Environment

  • It is important to remember that Archdiocese of Cincinnati safe environment policies remain in effect. During the three-week closure of the schools, faculty and staff are still prohibited from:

    • Have students come to the teachers’ homes;

    • Meeting with students in private places such as restaurants, libraries, etc. (most are closed)

  • Policy C.8 must be followed: Decree on Child Protection – July 2018 – C.8 Policy – Clerics, employees, and volunteers will use prudence when communicating with a child including, but not limited to, written communications, electronic communications, the Internet, online services, e-mails, instant messaging, online bulletin boards, social networking sites, social media, text messaging, pod casts, blogs, chat areas, and telephones, including cell phones. Appropriate and ethical communication boundaries in ministry must always be observed. Any form of communication that is intended to inappropriately manipulate a child or that incorporates any suggestive language, suggestive photos, sexual innuendos, inappropriate personal self-disclosures, etc., is forbidden. This includes visual, digital, or electronic communications in any format.

  • C.3 policy: For any organized program or activity sponsored by the Archdiocese or an Archdiocesan Organization, at least two adults, both of whom have successfully completed a training program approved by the Archbishop and background check through fingerprinting or otherwise in a manner approved by the Chancellor in accord with the current policies of the Archdiocese, and who are not related to each other or living in the same household, must be present for any activity including, but not limited to, after school tutoring of any sort (whether the tutor is hired by the parents or not).

    • This must be applied to all online-video based interactions with children.

  • Mandatory reporting rules are also still in effect. If you have reason to believe a student is being sexually, physically, or emotionally abused, you must report it to the Children’s Services Agency in the county where the student lives. You must also report it to the Office of Schools and the Safe Environment Office.
