      The more I believe that a person could argue that the school is negligent in failing to supervise a child placed in their custody, if the child is found to have sold drugs while in their custody.

      In essence, when you placed a child into the school's custody, the school became responsible for appropriate supervision.   It was the school's job to supervise him and prevent inappropriate behavior before it arose to a criminal offense.     The police have a different job, a job to find people who break the law and arrest them.   It was the school's job, in essence, to make sure the police were not needed.   Calling the police was an admission that the school failed in their job.

      By encouraging and allowing criminal behavior, the school failed in it's job to supervise and protect the child.  

      It was the school's job to supervise and protect.  Not the police.  Therefore, when the police detected inappropriate behavior that the school had failed to prevent, they proved that the school failed to adequately supervise and monitor the child's behavior.

      It may not work that way legally, but morally, it seems the school takes kids into their custody, let's them run wild, then just let's the police find them and take them away, once the problems occur.
