Neil Pedersen's answer Can you be fired? Yes. Will you be fired? No one here can tell you that. It depends on what the District believes occurred. Just because the police decided not to prosecute does not mean the District has to keep you employed. If you are in a union it would be important to get your union involved right away. Good luck to you.
Joseph Jaap's answer A university makes scholarship decisions. If they made a mistake and want their money back, they could withhold your diploma until repaid. You could get an attorney involved. That might delay things. You can use the Find a Lawyer tab to retain an attorney to review the facts and attend the meeting with you or go by yourself.
Michael David Siegel's answer To whom do you owe the money? If the school, write a letter denying the debt, and wait to be sued. If the Higher Education Authority or USDOE, then check your credit report and see how it is reflected and reach out to them.
Kim Ebert's answer The best source for an answer to this question and 1 that may be able to assist in any possible transition would be an appropriate official at the school, such as a counselor or administrative employee. The completion of a high school education is an extremely important step to success in life. It is in everyone’s best interest, and yours above all, that you complete yours. Good luck.
Hector E. Quiroga's answer We recommend that you speak with your school’s DSO. Generally under the circumstances you will want to go through the proper channels so you do not jeopardize your ability to reenter the US. It is more than likely a question of notifying the proper authorities of your intentions and then following all instructions for withdrawing.
Michael David Siegel's answer Does he have an IEP? If yes, what does it say? If not, you need to have him evaluated for disability services. You can do it privately, or request that the school do it for free.
Mr. Kent Thomas Jones Esq.'s answer From my experience with DCS, they are fairly active in cases like this. Your other alternative is to file a lawsuit against everybody involved: the school principal, the gym teacher, the school and anyone else involved. When you are dealing with a school system, there may be initial administrative hurdles to overcome first. It will be too complicated to do yourself. You should find an attorney that will consult with you on price and approach.
Leon Matchin's answer Your best bet is to hire a private attorney to take the case to trial because sounds like the public defender's office doesn't feel that they want to spend their time taking your case to trial for whatever reason. If you have a budget for a private attorney then that's your best bet. Good luck!
Ali Shahrestani, Esq.'s answer Why not simply provide the colleges to which you are applying a copy of any court order showing your legal name change, which should state the old name and the new name, when providing them a copy of old documents and records? The College Board policy seems reasonable enough so that it does not create a significant burden for them to worry about changing names on records that are older than 4 years. It's a private, non profit organization, and when you take tests through the College Board, you...
Timothy Denison's answer You need to consult a local bankruptcy attorney. Many student accounts are federally insured and your debt may be non-dischargeable as most student loans are. You need a lawyer to delve into this deeper and determine whether your debt is dischargeable!

Joseph Jaap's answer The court makes that determination. Your mother would have to file with the court to ask for a change. The court will take your desire into account, but might not agree to the change.
Ali Shahrestani, Esq.'s answer Perhaps your father might have a basis for an employment law complaint, but that really depends on the facts leading to his termination. Also it would be useful to know when your remission was cut off - mid year or after the full year, as well as the contractual terms of the remission benefits. More details are necessary to provide a professional analysis of your issue. The best first step is an Initial Consultation with an Attorney such as myself. You can read more about me, my credentials,...
