Default Re: who at the school is contacted during a CPS case?

here in NY after a CPS case is open the investigating social worker talks with the child, school nurse, school psychologist, the childs teacher and any other school employee that has contact with the child at any time during the school year, that means recess aids, gym coaches, aids, the school principal, school office staff and if the child eats in a central lunch room the lunch staff are also interviewed.

on the home front any adult relative that has had contact with the child, sometimes the neighbors depending upon the situation.

treatment providers... the CPS investigator also contacts the family doctor and any other treatment providers that care for the childs health issues.

in extremely rare cases parents of the childs friends may also be contacted if there is any evidence that they may have witnessed an abusive situation, or bruises and such that point to abuse.
