From Canton, Massachusetts, USA:

My daughter attends a parochial school. Must a parent be present on school field trips? Are the laws different for public schools versus private schools?


In most cases, state laws regarding children with chronic diseases and special education needs apply to private or parochial schools. I would contact your state education department to learn what rights and responsibilities you have as a parent with a child with diabetes.
