Honoring its founder’s vision, Emma Willard School proudly fosters in each young woman a love of learning, the habits of an intellectual life, and the character, moral strength, and qualities of leadership to serve and shape her world.
A bill sponsored by Democratic Assemblywoman Cathy Nolan of Queens, and western New York Republican Pat Gallivan in the Senate has made its way to the desk of Governor Cuomo.
The legislation would require that employees of private schools be mandated reporters by law. Currently, private schools are not required by law to report instances of negligence or abuse to authorities. Emma Willard School’s mandatory reporting policy exceeds the current law, and clearly states that each adult is considered a mandated reporter.
