Your answer depends greatly on the wording of the employment contract between you and your employer. I would suggest that you schedule an appointment with a local attorney who practices employment law and they can provide a better opinion after reading your contract.
I fulfilled the duties of my 2019-2020 teacher contract. However, I was informed that my contract would not be renewed for 2020-2021. I am filling out applications, and they are asking if I have ever been involuntarily terminated. Do I choose yes or no?

I have not reviewed the specific form you are asking about. The form may include a definitions section that would help in answering this question. If you are requesting specific legal advice, you should consider consulting with an attorney.
In general I see termination as a word equivalent... Read more »

You have not asked a question. Read what has been served upon you, then either ask a question here or hire an attorney. If you are the Defendant you must act quickly or a Default will go down against you.

Need a lot more facts and context to answer your question. If you have concerns, contact local counsel to discuss in more detail, or discuss with your employer.
Can I take a loss on this school that I am the only student that does not have a contract. I have finished my required hours for this trade. I started last year in May every time I ask for a contract I am referred as to "wait" or the instructor and owner says"I got you".... Read more »

Stop, look and listen--carefully: If you received the training you went to the school for then you MUST pay for it. Using the excuse of not having a contract will NOT work. Nor will the lame excuse do any good when the school sues you.
Stop calling them about the contract. You are now... Read more »

Any fairly competent attorney can represent you in Juvenile Court. It is not difficult. But you really do not need a lawyer until you are cited. You might hire someone for a small fee for consultation and more if there is a charge.

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... Read more »

You cannot legally move out without your parents' consent until you turn 18. However, as a practical matter, it may be difficult for law enforcement to find you to take you home before your 18th birthday.

They probably can if the gathering of students was adding to the fight. The reason usually given in these situations is that it is a disruption to the school.

No, she is required to attend school until she is 18. With her parents' permission, she can be home schooled though.
I was only asking the professor at the time if an outline was necessary since I knew I probably wouldn't finish if I had to write one. He then proceeded to inform me that I had to do it and that it was something I was supposed to have learned in comp. Mind you that I never said I could not... Read more »

It is legal if he did not harm you, but merely put his hands on you as long as those hands were not in an area that would be considered a sexual touching. That being said, it may not have been appropriate conduct for a professor. You should report the incident to the college authorities. Based... Read more »
What will happen? Will the school report me? I've read up on how if you say your homeless the school can enroll you, what do I do?!?
answered on Feb 4, 2018
How old are you now? Were you committed to DCS as a delinquent or dependent/neglected? The school will report you if they figure out that you are a runaway. If you say that you are homeless and are under 18, they will contact DCS. I recommend that you contact an attorney.
Moved into a house with a 13 year old and has had a baby with her. His mother is a flake and has done nothing about it. DCS was called on them and he was ordered not to live there but to be at home. The problem being his mother is never there. My question is how do I go about getting him out of the... Read more »

It is not illegal to video tape them at school. It might violate school privacy laws for her to post the video publicly without parental permission.

You will go to court. The judge will ask the school system how many days the child has been absent. The judge will ask you why the child was absent and if you have any doctors' notes to excuse the absences. The judge may ask DCS to open a case if they are worried about your ability to care...

He is being sent to alternative school for a full calendar year. Is there anyway to get this reduced or have it removed from his record?
answered on Dec 21, 2017
You should be able to challenge the school discipline. Does your son have an IEP? Other due process protections attach if he does. You should consult an education law attorney to discuss challenging the school discipline.
