As a general matter, despite the ordeal it has caused you, there could be more economical ways of approaching something like this, maybe through academic advisor or...Read more »
It would be best if an employment attorney took your question, but it remains open for four weeks.

Hi. Following up on first response from Michael Siegel. My case is an odd one. My kids were enrolled in the district where we all lived with my ex-girlfriend. After the breakup, I moved.

If you have left your kids with a non-relative who is not a formal legal guardian, and left, you have more problems than the school. If child services finds out, they will open a case.

Hi, hope you’re well. I have a question regarding residency for schooling on Long Island. I am a single father and live with my two teenage children in Suffolk County.

If they do not live in the town where they go to school they will be thrown out and must go where you live. While you might be able to phony up a lease, the issue is where they sleep at night. If the district finds out mid-year, you could be thrown out ASAP. If your kids spill the beans on the...Read more »

What does the IEP say about placement now? You need to have a private opinion from a psychologist that the placement in the IEP is wrong, and call an emergency CSE to amend the IEP. If the IEP is changed to require private school, you are good. Your expert might have to come and present his/her...Read more »
The document was missing goals, and the district removed two agreed goals, resulting in inappropriate/ no reporting. Now are removing services with no progress reports to support. When realized error, they altered the document to cover up one goal was missing at reporting time.
She is almost 16. (5 months) and now wants to drop out due to the legal pressure and due to her mental health. Can they still keep this case on me if she does? They gave me educational neglect! This is all mental health related so why is it a crime against us? Also, They did not give her an IEP. I... Read more »
Why is it a crime? Because that is how the system works. If she has an IEP, you need to call an emergency CSE and get placement so there is no neglect. If she has no IEP, you must demand an immediate educational evaluation. Then, do whatever they say to save yourself. On dropping out, it is...Read more »

Great question. Private schools might operate via contracts and consent forms. Public schools operate under statutory law, and in NY the age of majority is 18. Thus technically, absent a consent waiver to communicate with others, public school administration and faculty should be communicating only...Read more »
