4213 - STUDENT WELL-BEING

Support staff members may be confronted with situations which, if handled incorrectly, could result in liability to the School and personal liability to the staff member.

It is the responsibility of the School Leader to prepare administrative guidelines to ensure the maintenance of the following standards:

 A.Each support staff member shall report immediately to the principal any accident or safety hazard s/he detects.

 B.Each support staff member shall immediately report to the principal any knowledge of threats of violence by students.

 C.A support staff member shall not send students on any personal errands.

 D.A support staff member shall not associate with students, at any time in a manner which gives the appearance of impropriety, including, but not limited to, the creation or participation in any situation or activity which could be considered abusive or sexually suggestive or involve illegal substances such as tobacco, alcohol, or drugs.
  This provision should not be construed as precluding a support staff member from associating with students in private for legitimate or proper reasons.

 E.A support staff member shall not transport students in a private vehicle without the approval of the principal.

 F.A student shall not be required to perform work or services that may be detrimental to his/her health.

Most information concerning a child in school, other than directory information described in Policy 8330, is confidential under Federal and State laws. Any staff member who shares confidential information with another person not authorized to receive the information may be subject to discipline or civil liability. This includes, but is not limited to, information concerning assessments, grades, behavior, family background, and alleged child abuse.
