Last fall, Auditor General Eugene DePasquale began checking school districts to see if they had updated their policies on reporting child abuse, and since then there have been 38 districts that have implemented new policies or updated their old ones. 

While 38 schools have implemented or updated their policies, DePasquale stated that there are still 244,000 students across the state who are in school districts without updated policies. One district, Susquenita School District in Perry County, was reported to have no policy in place as of February 1, 2019.
