diapers in public school

6 posts in this topic

Iam hoping someone can lead me to what the law says about a paraprofessional changing pull-ups in school. i have been put in this position as have my co-workers where they or myself will be alone with students, and aren't comfortable. i am looking for what options i have?

It is hard to imagine a law regarding helping children changing their pull-ups.  The obvious concern is some parent concluding you have inappropriately touched their child in the course of the changing.  Your obvious protection is to never do this when you are alone with the child.

No, I don't know of any such decisions.  I doubt there are any courts interested in deciding whether school personnel may or may not change diapers.

 

But, if you have gotten conflicting information, ask those giving differing opinions for the legal basis of their opinion.

"RetiredinVA" is almost certainly correct.

 

What sort of law are you looking for or hoping to find?  A law that says you can't be required to change a diaper?  If so, no such law exists.
