We moved here in March. I found out last week that as a punishment, his teacher is not letting him go to graded elective classes. When I talked to the principal, he stated this is something the teachers came up with as a form of detention. When I spoke to his elective teachers, they hadn't... Read more »

A parent called the school and said my daughter had a video of a fight on her snapchat. The principal went through her phone and sent several unknown things to himself and then had her delete what he sent himself. He then threatened to suspend her.
I recorded someone making a bomb threat in a class room and posted it. I am now being charged with the first degree misdemeanor telecommunications harassment. Am I guilty of this charge? I did not say anything in the video at all. I was also suspended 5 days for Filming. I am a minor by the way.... Read more »
Your guilt or innocence here turn on your intent. If you were a party to making the threat, that is, if you made the video with the intention of helping this other person communicate their threat, then yes, you are guilty of telecommunications harassment. If you made the recording with the...Read more »
US birth certificate. Isn't this city overreach and illegal to use taxpayer money on children (or the children of parents who are here illegally) who are not born in this country and do not speak English (putting other children behind) and do not have legal status?
They told us we did NOT have to get vaccinated then an hour later told us that we DO need to get vaccinated against COVID-19. I was accepted for a month and a half with a down payment before I was informed that I needed to get the COVID vaccine, so now it’s crunch time and I either get the shot... Read more »
It's in the definition says unless the convict has served the president's sentence or prison terms or is pardoned or completed the community sanction program? So if I'm understanding that correctly the unless means that once you are finished so all privileges should be restored... Read more »
The definition of convict in R.C. 2967 is any person convicted of an Ohio felony whether or not they went to prison but not including people who were pardoned or have finished serving their sentence. In other words, convict means any person either in prison for a felony, in jail for a felony, or...Read more »
This is a difficult question to answer. Is it a private or public school? What type of punishment are you talking about? It seems like the tardiness would be excusable. Is there some sort of appellate process? Depending on what's going on it may or may not be worth the costs of hiring an...Read more »
I am attempting to sign my daughter up for kindergarten in our local public school. Her mother recently passed away this year. I am on the birth certificate and we'd have lived together for around 7 years and before our daughter was born. I provide all health insurance, claim her on taxes, and... Read more »
If you were not married to the mother, then the mother had sole legal custody and parental rights. Those parental rights did not automatically transfer to you when she died. It often is not sufficient that your name is on the birth certificate, as you found with the school. If a court has not...Read more »

Yes, but while you are still in Highschool and living at home, your parents are responsible for your reasonable care, accommodation, and feeding. If you move out, you will relieve them of those responsibilities and they won't have to take you back if it turns out you can't cut it on your own.

Students will be randomly selected throughout the semester, 100 at a time. Students with no symptoms, no contact tracing, perfectly random. If they choose not to be tested they will be made to “ quarantine “until they comply. They will not be allowed to attend their classes. This is only for... Read more »
That’s a rather strange scheme. There’s little precedent on a lot of these issues. General, common sense health precautions are likely to be upheld in court. But this does seem wrongheaded. For one thing, with limited testing resources, it makes sense to focus on those with symptoms or probable...Read more »
Yes. An 18 year old is an adult and can move where he or she pleases. As long as they remain in high school, you are legally required to put a roof over their head if they want it, but they are not required to stay.
The counselors at your school should be able to tell you what the guidelines in your district or county are. It may be as much a personal decision as one of regulations so far as staying in school goes. No one is going to drag you at gunpoint to finish school should you make the decision to drop...Read more »
