 Neglect is the persistent failure to meet the student 's basic physical and emotional necessities of life, such that the student’s emotional and physical development are affected.
Basic needs include housing, food, adequate clothing, personal hygiene and hygienic living conditions.
Inadequate supervision or placing the child in dangerous environments are all forms of neglect.
Students experiencing neglect may frequently be late or absent from school, be missing lunches, and present as tired and unable to participate in school routine.
