What the Expert Says:

Document every instance of what happens and when.  After compiling some evidence, take  your concerns to the school prinicipal and let them know what is going on.  Try not to enter this meeting with the principal with a confrontational attitude, instead try to approach it with a sense of teamwork to make the situation better.  See if you and the principal can come up with a gameplan and then proceed.  Continue to check in and see if the interventions are effective.  If over time you find they are not, go back to the prinicipal and let them know.  Continue to try and work with the school instead of against them.  If you reach a point where you feel as though they are not taking your claims seriously or are doing enough, than perhaps go to the superintendant or the school board.  These situations are very tricky and it can be very difficult to resolve them. If worse comes to worse and you do not think that the school environment is healthy for your child and you feel powerless to change it, than you may want to consider a transfer or home schooling.  

We wish you well and hope this is helpful.

I'd personally have a sit down with the coach as well as the principal, if the principal refused to do anything I would then go to the  Board of Education.  You can look into the regulations for school administration in your city/state and see what type of offense it is, if it's listed as reportable, I'd go to the police.

Good luck!
