Children on Campus

Return To: 2016-2017 Student Handbook 

Ozarks Technical Community College provides environments that promote learning for students who are enrolled. Classroom, studio, library and laboratory settings are not appropriate places for children except when the child is a registered participant in a college-sponsored activity. The campuses are also places of easy access to the public and do not have resources to protect unsupervised children, which could place the child at risk. Therefore, students and visitors are prohibited from leaving a child unattended at any college facility and may be removed from class until appropriate childcare arrangements can be made.

In accordance with Missouri law, any person having reasonable cause to believe that a child has been subjected to child abuse or neglect or observes acts of child abuse or neglect on campus shall report this information immediately to the Missouri Children’s Division within the Department of Social Services. The Child Abuse and Neglect hotline is 1-800-392-3738. For more information visit dss.mo.gov/cd/rptcan.htm.
