Asked in Education Law and Criminal Law for Maryland

Q: Is there anything I can do about a parent I feel threatened by as a teacher?

The parent has a "no trespass order" from an incident last year where she was verbally abusive to staff members and could not control her behavior.

She violated the order this year and came onto school property. Police were called and told her she had to leave, in which she again became very angry and was throwing out inappropriate language.

She was given an involuntary transfer to another school but it is not being enforced.

She has accused me of not catering to her sons needs and is very negative and nasty towards me.

A: You should start by consulting your superiors. It doesn't seem like from this post you have grounds for a protective order. Or consult an attorney. More information is needed.
