This Checklist is designed to help you work with:
- school departments,
- administrators, and
when a restraining order has been issued to protect you or your child.
This Checklist contains some practical things that you can do to work effectively with your child's school. The practical suggestions are from laws that protect survivors of domestic violence from further abuse.
Meet with the school principal: Review what the restraining order says. Discuss the ways that the school can help you make sure that the order is obeyed.
Ask school officials to put a policy into effect under which key school personnel inform the principal if they are contacted in any way by a parent who is under a restraining order or if they see a parent who is under a restraining order on or near school grounds.
