1. What are the requirements concerning the Child Restraint Law?

Answer: s.s. 316.613 The vehicle operated on the roadways, streets, or highways of this state shall provide protection of a child 5 years of age or younger by using a crash tested, federally approved child restraint. For children aged through three years, such device must be a separate carrier or a vehicle manufacturer’s integrated child seat. For children aged 4 through 5 years, a separate carrier, an integrated child seat, or seat belt may be used.

2. Who do I contact if my son/daughter is not being treated fairly at school by a teacher or administrator?

Answer: The deputies are assigned to the schools to provide security on the grounds during school hours. They are assigned to enforce Florida State Statutes, not the School Code of Conduct. If the problem is with the facility, you need to need contact Mr. Fred Murphy’s Office and request to talk with Mr. McDonald. The phone number is 534-7309. If it is a problem with discipline, you need to contact Mr. Greg Bondurant at 499-2728.

3. My son/daughter is having trouble at the bus stop with other students. Who do I contact?

Answer: There are several ways to address this problem. If the bus stop is located inside a city limits, you can contact that police agency with jurisdiction. If it occurs outside a municipality, you may contact the Sheriff’s Office and a deputy will be dispatched. The student may also report it to the School Resource Deputy when they arrive at school.

4. Can a School Resource Deputy interview my son/daughter at school without notifying the parent or guardian in advance?

Answer: Yes. Florida Law does not require a School Resource Deputy or Police Officer to notify you in advance. It only requires the deputy or police officer to notify you as soon as possible when the student is arrested.
