 Child Protection Policy for a Virtual Learning Environment: Recognizing and Reporting Abuse in Virtual Learning Environments and an Online Code of Conduct for Educators
Patricia Scott, Ed.D. & Patricia Dailey Lewis, Esq.

Target Audience:  School Leadership Teams, Administration, Counselors

The advent of classrooms and youth programming converting to a virtual environment means teachers will have a new view of the students they serve. For the first time educators will catch a glimpse inside students’ homes when we engage with them online and must adapt child protection strategies accordingly. The Online Code of Conduct sets forth the expectations and responsibilities for online teaching and learning, and the standards to which all educators must comply for the protection of students.

Teachers and school officials are key in the prevention of child abuse through early recognition and reporting. With schools shifting to online learning environments, teachers must take note of students during all online interactions with a different lens.

During this one hour workshop, we will discuss a new online code of conduct for teachers as well as review what constitutes a mandated report in the virtual learning environment.

Currently, as Director of Strategic Partnerships and Grants, she works directly with schools and youth-serving organizations to complete the Shield of Protection, an innovative collaboration between the Foundation and youth-serving organizations and schools to implement best practices in child protection policies, procedures and trainings.  Dr. Scott serves on the Board for Salesianum High School, Padua Academy High School, and Delaware Charter Schools Network.


Patricia Dailey Lewis is the Executive Director of the Beau Biden Foundation for the Protection of Children. The Foundation was created after the death of former Attorney General Joseph R.“Beau” Biden, III, in 2015, to honor his life’s passion, protecting children from abuse.

A practicing attorney for more than 30 years, Mrs. Lewis was previously Deputy Attorney General with the Delaware Department of Justice and, until her retirement on November 30, 2015, served as the Director of the Family Division. The Family Division was created by Attorney General Biden in 2007 to better respond to the needs of children and families in the justice system. The Division handles litigation concerning child protection, child abuse, juvenile delinquency, domestic violence, child support and elder abuse. The Division also maintained a strong presence in many community, speaking out on family and child safety issues, including implementation of the Stewards of Children child sexual abuse prevention program, as well as bullying and internet safety and education initiatives in child and family protection.
