Joseph Jerkins v. Board of Education of Pleasantville Public Schools

6-14-07 (A-49-06)

Schools have a duty to exercise reasonable care for supervising
students’ safety at dismissal. That duty requires school
districts to adopt and comply with a reasonable dismissal
supervision policy, provide adequate notice of that policy to
parents and guardians, and comply with parents’ reasonable
requests regarding dismissal.
