45. Any report to the effect that the security or development of a child is or may be considered to be in danger must be transmitted to the director. The director must consider the report, analyze it briefly and decide whether it is to be accepted for evaluation.
In a case where the situation of a group of five or more children is reported for educational neglect in connection with the schooling they receive or with their compliance with compulsory school attendance, the director must, during his analysis, make an additional verification in the children’s family environment or any other environment the children frequent, unless the director has all the information necessary to accept the reports for evaluation.
