All Trinitas employees are required to affirm and sign the Trinitas Statement of Faith as a condition of employment. Among the tenets in the statement of faith is this, “We believe that the Bible is the very Word of God in its entirety and, therefore, is our final authority in matters of faith and practice.” The Bible teaches us much about how to treat others, but perhaps nothing more pressing upon our consciences than these two principles: all people are made in the image of God, and we are to love our neighbors as ourselves (Gen 1:26; Matthew 22:39). From this foundational truth flows our ethical conduct at Trinitas.
All Trinitas instructional personnel and administrators are required as a condition of employment to complete training on these standards of ethical conduct.
All employees and administrators have an obligation to report misconduct by instructional personnel and school administrators which affects the health, safety, or welfare of a student.
Reports of misconduct of employees should be made to James Cowart, Headmaster, at (850) 484-3515. Reports of misconduct committed by administrators should be made to Wesley Todd, President of the Board of Governors, at (850) 516-3073.
Policies and procedures for reporting misconduct by instructional personnel or school administrators which affects the health, safety, or welfare of a student are posted on the bulletin board in room #200, in the Trinitas Family Handbook, and on our website at trinitaschristian.org.
All employees and agents have an affirmative duty to report all actual or suspected cases of child abuse, abandonment, or neglect. Call 1-800-96-ABUSE or report online at: www.dcf.state.fl.us/abuse/report/.
Any person, official, or institution participating in good faith in any act authorized or required by law, or reporting in good faith any instance of child abuse, abandonment, or neglect to the department or any law enforcement agency, shall be immune from any civil or criminal liability which might otherwise result by reason of such action. (F.S. 39.203) An employer who discloses information about a former or current employee to a prospective employer of the former or current employee upon request of the prospective employer or of the former or current employee is immune from civil liability for such disclosure or its consequences unless it is shown by clear and convincing evidence that the information disclosed by the former or current employer was knowingly false or violated any civil right of the former or current employee protected under F.S. Chapter 760. (F.S. 768.095)
