Mandated Reporter- as coaches and members of the school district we are a mandated reporter so we will follow FISD and State of Texas guidelines on suspected abuse.

Anyone who SUSPECTS a child has been abused or neglected must notify CPS or law enforcement [Family Code, Section 261.101(a)] within 48 hours. To contact CPS by phone, call 800-252-5400, or online at (create a password).

Reporting will usually take about 10 to 30 minutes, and although you have 48 hours in which to make the report, it is very important that you do it as quickly as possible, especially if your concerns are high for the child’s safety. Find a private place where confidentiality can be maintained, and have the child’s basic information – parents’ names, address, and phone numbers.

Our local numbers for law enforcement are the Frisco Police Department, Victim Assistance, 972-292-6141 (Tonia Cunningham), or for outside the city limits the Collin County Sheriff’s Department, 972-547-5100 or Denton County Sheriff’s Department, 940-349-1600. For more information you can refer to the following website: (click on Victim Assistance). If the situation seems very dangerous or urgent, do not make your report online. Use the hotline number, 800-252-5400, or for the quickest response call law enforcement.
