You should seek an attorney's help immediately.  Was he assaulted on school property? If yes, then the school should be taking some action and may be responsible if they had prior notice of an incident or problems.  If they are waiting to get him after school you need an attorney to take action to keep them away from him.  All the facts are necessary to determine what is going on here and what avenue you need to pursue. Look here at attorneypages.com for starters n locating an attorney.  And notify the school, in writing, asap as well.
