Summary

This monograph focuses on legal problems that schools might encounter in dealing with cases of child abuse. It opens with an article that introduces issues considered in more depth in the chapters that follow. Each of the articles focuses on a particular legal concern that may arise when a school district encounters a case of child abuse. The chapters, written by experts in the field, examine schools' responsibility under federal law, the careful selection of employees, child-abuse training, school employees' legal obligation to report suspected child abuse, issues in interagency cooperation, investigating and screening sexual misconduct charges, due-process issues, teacher sexual misconduct, confidential settlement agreements, legal issues for schools assisting abuse victims, school insurance policies, how schools should deal with child abuse, a prosecutor's view of how to work together for the sake of children, a social-work perspective on child abuse, and proposals for legislative and policy change. Because much of the law applicable to child abuse is controlled by state codes, administrative regulations, or decisions by state courts, the analysis presented in each chapter is general rather than specific in nature and should not be construed as legal advice. Eight appendices provide various sample policies and legal references. (RJM)
