Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting

Case Study: Neglect Scenario 1

You notice that a student in one of your classes has been wearing the same two outfits to school for over a month since the temperature changed to be cooler. The outfits are appropriate for the weather and the student, as well as, their clothing is always clean. You casually mention to the student that they seem to have some favorite outfits for the cooler weather. The student volunteers that they only have two long sleeve shirts, two pair of long pants, and one jacket that fit right now because the family is having a difficult time financially since his father was laid off.

Should this be reported to DFACS?
