    It is subtle enough to be easily missed. In effect, the schools are malfeasant by allowing individuals not hired by the district to have contact with the kids.

    For instance, every field trip requires a permission slip, and they also require chaperones to represent the school district - in essence, protection of the kids because the parents won't be there.

    There really isn't any difference when the individual comes in to school grounds. It is someone who is not hired by the school, does not report to the school district, and is not there with the permission of the parents.

    Also note that most sports require a waiver due to participation in "high risk" activities.

    Perhaps one route would be to require a permission slip and a waiver for each student to allow contact from those external to the school.

    No waiver, no permission, no contact!

      I like it very much.  

      But, again, it's a zero tolerance environment.  There's no common sense.   Just more forms.  

      Eventually, it becomes unmanageable, and the only real solution is for the parents to place the child with someone they can trust,  who follows the parent's directives and complies with the parent's wishes and puts the emphasis on the child's best interests -- which is not, these days, a school.  Schools force kids and parents to comply with their directives and their wishes, and sublimates the child's best interests to what they see as the school district's best interests, which is not the same thing.
