Child Protection Committee Holds First Community Forum April 5

Group Wants Input from the Public

PULASKI - The first in a series of community forums sponsored by the Oswego County Child Protection Advisory Council will be Tuesday, April 5, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Lura Sharp Elementary School cafeteria, Lake Street, Pulaski.

The Child Protection Advisory Council is looking for the public's input and views on issues of child protection in Oswego County. The council has adopted the theme "Our County, Our Children, Our Future, Our Responsibility."

The meeting will be hosted by Dr. Marshall Marshall, chairman of the Child Protection Advisory Council and superintendent of the Pulaski Academy and Central School District, and Sandy Creek School Superintendent Stewart Amell.

"It is everyone's responsibility to help keep our children safe from abuse and neglect," said Dr. Marshall. "We are looking for input from the public, and will share information about what people should do if they suspect abuse or neglect, and inform them of the role of the Department of Social Services and its level of authority, limitations, and the roles of other key agencies and providers."

Additional community forums have been scheduled for Wednesday, April 13 at the Scriba Town Justice Center; Thursday, April 28: Fulton Municipal Building, 141 S. First St., Fulton; and Tuesday, May 3, at the Millard Hawk Primary School cafeteria, Central Square.
