Illinois State Police Releases Form For School Administrators To Use When Reporting Students Who Pose A “Clear And Present Danger”


As we previously reported in a FR Alert, the new School Administrator Reporting of Mental Health Clear and Present Danger Determinations Law requires public school principals and chief administrative officers of private schools (as well as chief administrative officers of public or private community colleges, colleges, or universities), or their designees, to report to the Illinois Department of State Police when a student is determined to pose a clear and present danger to himself, herself, or to others. This report must be made within 24 hours of the determination.

The Illinois Department of State Police recently released a form for administrators to use when making these reports. This form, as well as instructions for completing the form, are now available on the Department’s website.
