This from the student/parent handbook in fredericksburg, texas. There is no doubt in this public system the state is the parent has no rights after they sign their child into these places.
LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES
Questioning of Students
When law enforcement officers or other lawful authorities wish to question or interview a student at school, the principal will cooperate fully regarding the conditions of the interview, if the questioning or interview is part of a child abuse investigation. In other circumstances:
The principal will verify and record the identity of the officer or other authority and ask for an explanation of the need to question or interview the student at school.
The principal ordinarily will make reasonable efforts to notify the parents unless the interviewer raises what the principal considers to be a valid objection.
- 37 -
The principal ordinarily will be present unless the interviewer raises what the principal considers to be a valid objection.
Students Taken Into Custody
State law requires the District to permit a student to be taken into legal custody:
To comply with an order of the juvenile court.
To comply with the laws of arrest.
By a law enforcement officer if there is probable cause to believe the student has engaged in delinquent conduct or conduct in need of supervision.
By a probation officer if there is probable cause to believe the student has violated a condition of probation imposed by the juvenile court.
By an authorized representative of Child Protective Services, Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, a law enforcement officer, or a juvenile probation officer, without a court order, under the conditions set out in the Family Code relating to the student’s physical health or safety.
To comply with a properly issued directive to take a student into custody.
Before a student is released to a law enforcement officer or other legally authorized person, the principal will verify the officer’s identity and, to the best of his or her ability, will verify the official’s authority to take custody of the student.
The principal will immediately notify the Superintendent and will ordinarily attempt to notify the parent unless the officer or other authorized person raises what the principal considers to be a valid objection to notifying the parents. Because the principal does not have the authority to prevent or delay a, student’s release to a law enforcement officer, any notification will most likely be after the fact.
