Vandalism by Minors and Adult Students


Vandalism by Minors

The parent or guardian of any unemancipated minor who willfully cuts, defaces or otherwise injures in any way any property, real or personal, belonging to the school district shall be held liable for all such damages up to the maximum amount allowed under state law.

 

The liability provided under Connecticut General Statutes 52-572 does not relieve the minor(s) of personal liability for such damage or injury. This liability of the parent for damages done by a minor child is in addition to any other liability which exists in law.

 

Vandalism by an Adult Student

An adult student shall be held personally liable for any damage done to any property, real or personal, belonging to the school district. The student may also be subject to disciplinary action.

 

NOTE: Although not vandalism, the parent or guardian of a minor child shall also be held liable for all property belonging to the school system lent to the pupil and not returned upon demand of the school system. The student may also be subject to disciplinary action.

 

Legal Reference: Connecticut General Statutes:

52-572 Parental liability for torts of minors.
10-221(c) Board of Education to prescribe rules, policies and procedures.
