Ok, so the overall feel of my colleagues regarding this situation is very split.. and I can't seem to get a straight answer. I teach 6th grade, which is middle school. Does a parent neglecting to give their child medication repeatedly that affects their learning constitute neglect? The student in question is special education with an IEP and a BIP. The student is a completely different student and I have called personally 3 times this year, not counting other teachers counselors and the nurse, for the student's parents to bring the medication. The student comes to school dirty 3/5 days a week. The student has also been caught breaking into the school on the weekend while unsupervised at the school with friends. I do not want to file unnecessarily, but am very concerned.
