The prinicpal admitted that it was the school's fault. She initially said I could view the video and then told me it was against the law for me to view it because other children were in the video. It is a private school.
In 2015 I was attending ULM for a second masters in criminal justice. I had 12 hours and was signed up for three/three week summer classes. When I went online to get my books, I had no financial aid. I contacted the office and finally, a week into my first class, it got straightened out. I was a... View More
A Louisiana attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. The short answer is that it could depend on the school's refund policy, depending on when during the semester a student withdraws from class. You could repost under the "Education Law" and...View More
You did not post your question(s), but based on what you did write, my recommendation is that you please contact a lawyer in your area to discuss your options going forward and how to best assist your son with mitigating what can happen.
My children’s two dogs have gotten loose on two separate occasions only for a matter of minutes. Someone called animal control each time. Now I have 6 charges I have to go to court for. I didn’t think leash law was a real legal obligation. I kno ignorance of the law doesn’t mean I can break... View More
Well, as a child growing up, I really didn't have too much serious health issues in which alerted me even more. My dreams were to be an athlete and play in the percussion section in my school Band. My basketball ball dreams were crushed not only because how expensive the gear and fee's... View More
A Louisiana attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. As a general observation, based on your description, it looks like it would be a difficult case. You're talking about gastrointestinal and muscle spasm symptoms, some of which were of a fleeting nature....View More
An Louisiana attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. As a general matter nationwide, if a teacher or teacher's aide has been trained in the procedure and parental permission in on file, they could be required - but a Louisiana employment attorney could offer...View More
My son attends the school in our area. When asked verbally to stop services from an outside agency the school counselor stated she misunderstood. There was a conference call shortly after this incident stating again I did not want an outside counselor agency coming to the school to see my son. The... View More
This is something that an educational administrator would probably know better than an attorney would. One option might be to contact the Louisiana Department of Education or a superintendent in the school district. Good luck
We reported an incident of hazing and bullying as a group at my university. The school ignored the complaints until we demanded meetings with the deans about other issues, then we were finally permitted to report the hazing
Now, the school refuses to treat the victims as a collective group.... View More
They keep pushing the idea of me getting a G.E.D, which isn't fair to me at all because this is my life not their's. Their poor excuse is that I was messing up at my previous school, but I started to get it together right before I moved to where I am now which was the middle of the year.... View More
I admire you for your drive and ambition. I would tell them flat-out that you want to stay and school and finish. Make a deal with them that you can stay in school as long as you continue to make good grades and stay out of trouble. Good luck!
This post was about a situation that occurred at 5:30 (after school hours) at my niece's dance gym. It had absolutely nothing to do with school. My principal thought it was about her and went to the school board after I told her it wasn't about her and requested a hearing and suspension... View More
This question depends on many factors, including whether you are a member of a union and what the school board policies are in your parish (I am assuming you are a public school teacher). You should contact a local employment lawyer quickly to act to preserve your job.
