Hi I had a question about the circumstances involving a junior high student, Trevor, residing in NV. Got suspended for unexcused absences. School procedures are that they have to give the parents a telephone call and a prompt written notice, but only give a written notice to the student saying he will be suspended. The dean gives him a note saying he will besuspended, but throws it away. His parents are unaware of the suspension, and while he is suspended gets shot the next day. Who is at fault? Do parents have a defense for liability charges.

Posted by JustAnswer at customer's request) Hello. I would like to request the following Expert Service(s) from you: Live Phone Call. Let me know if you need more information, or send me the service offer(s) so we can proceed.
Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
The parents are liable to ensure the student goes to school. However, if the parent makes reasonable efforts for the child to get to school and the child hides the fact they are not attending from the parents, the school is liable for following policy and notifying the parents DIRECTLY and not through the student. If the school did not follow its own policy, absent proof that the parents did not make reasonable effort for their child to attend school and knew or should have known they were not attending based on those facts, then this is grounds to argue the parent should not be liable for what they had no notice or knowledge of.
This is something the parents need to appeal to the local school board to present the information and argue that had the school followed its own policy the matter would have been corrected before it got to the point of suspension.
