CHILD ABUSE REPORTING REQUIREMENTS. It is understood by the Parties that Karuk Tribal social workers, pursuant to Welfare and Institutions Code section 215, are social workers within the coverage of Penal Code section 11165.7 and are thus persons designated as mandated reporters. The Tribe will thus require reporting of suspected child abuse or neglect in a manner that meets the requirements of section 471 (a) (9) of the Social Security Act, is consistent with California's Title IV-E State Plan and complies with the California Child Abuse Neglect and Reporting Act.11 At the time of execution of this Agreement, this means that a Tribal social worker will report suspected child abuse or neglect to the entities identified in Penal Code section 11165.9.
