My son had a fight he was detained and issued a citation and I was not informed by the school that they signed a citation in my place or that a citation was even given so the court date was missed due to not informing the parents
While NRS 392.150 grants school personnel authority to detain a pupil for certain offenses, including fighting, the requirement for parental notification is not explicitly outlined in this context. Additionally, NRS 392.149 mandates notifying parents of truancy-related citations. Schools generally...View More
It is never acceptable for a teacher to physically restrain a child, especially by using a headlock. This is considered excessive force and can result in serious injury to the child. In Nevada, there are strict laws in place to protect students from physical abuse by teachers.
One option is to file a complaint with the Nevada Department of Education. The department has a responsibility to investigate all complaints of bullying and to take steps to address the problem. Suppose the department finds that the school has not adequately addressed the bullying. In that case, it...View More

Two admin and two officers came in escorted me up front while they called a testing company. I test... View More
You should have counsel with you. You also should contact an employment lawyer and your union representative as this is more of an employment issue than an educational issue. Do not discuss this with anyone outside of your lawyer.
The threat was called in to local PD regarding the high school. District lockdown all school for several hours. Many students including my kids didn’t get lunch that day. Students had to pee in bucket’s in class while teacher held up a blanket. PD posted on FB they believed it was a hoax. In... View More
It is possible that the lockdown and lack of provisions for lunch and bathroom breaks during the lockdown could be seen as a violation of students' civil rights. However, whether or not there is a case against the district would depend on a number of factors, including the specific...View More

The high school by my house has a sign allowing people to use the track for exercise and dog walking. I use the track in the summer when schools out. Usually at 11:00pm-1:00am, so I like to have a firearm on me. Is this allowed since the school is closed for several months, and it’s in the... View More
No. See NRS 202.265. This statute does not have an exception for the time of day. The track is part of school property for any Nevada public school I know about. You can face a criminal charge for being on school property with a gun at any time. It's a gross misdemeanor, and you can face up to...View More

So you need to act quick and apply for DACA as soon as you can. And how old is your daughter?, depending...View More
