During an actual evacuation in a public high school, a teacher was directed by administration to leave the building immediately. The teacher refused and continued to remain in the building to obtain an item.
My highschool record was very clean for the most part (had a lunch detention in my sophomore year) but my grades are good and my SAT scores are on the higher end of NYU's average. (I am hoping to get into NYU)
My daughter came home from school, dropped of her backpack then went out with a friend. At that time she ran into another girl who threatened to beat my daughter up the night before.

Unless there is a Code of Conduct that is given to the students, that specifically states conduct outside of school grounds and NOT at a School function or at a School Sanctioned event, I do not think that this can be done.
My school has a rule that you can't miss more than 12 days unexcused or you fail. I would like to know where this stands on a legal level. These absences include days when I was marked absent but was present and if I were late to school 4 times would make an absence. I would like to know of any... Read more »
Hard to answer without knowing your son's diagnosis. Cuggest you contact the Education Law Center in Philadelphia --they would at least know a similar organization in NJ and could perhaps give you an outline of what the Department Of Education regs require. If you haven't explored why they want...Read more »

Suggest you contact a member of the NJ Assn for Justice who handles education issues. They give free consultations. However, it sounds like nothing bad happened, and the law only gives damages for what did happen, not what could have happened.
Much depends on the injury and circumstances, but if he came out of it with the injury not being made worse, the amount you would get would not be worth an attorney taking it.In other words, you only collect based on the damage that did happen, not what could have happened.I realize in these...Read more »
I graduated from the school about 5 years ago and have been making monthly payments ever since. I received a notice in the mail about account changes and it stated potential credit inquiry may occur. The letter was received after the hard inquiry took place. I thought the credit inquiry was fraud... Read more »
Your question(s) and concerns are too fact specific to be answered in this forum, since a review of the documents is necessary for a meaningful answer. You will need to have an in person consultation with an attorney.
The school system is not cooperating with giving what he needs. Her next step is mediation and if that doesn't do it, court is only option. She does have an education advocate helping her, but has low income and could not afford to go to court.
Contact your local bar association, and autistic charitable associations. You need to retain an attorney. If you can't afford an attorney you need to contact legal services and the local law school legal clinics. Good luck.
YES, they certainly can. It does not matter whether or not the loan was through the school or not. You received a substantial benefit (education), which you have either not paid for or maybe partially paid for, so why would you feel entitled to the transcripts? If you work for someone or perform a...Read more »

Chances are if they are closing, they MAY also file for Bankruptcy, in which case you would get nothing. You should contact the State Attorney General where they are based and call the NJ AG as well. Sorry I can't give you any better information. Good luck.
This shouldn't be a problem so long as its an ABA approved school and meets the NJ Standards. The problem you will have is that you will learn a lot of NY law which will not be applicable when you take the NJ Bar so you will need to study harder and learn NJ law also. Good Luck, but I will warn...Read more »
My kids were kicked out of school by the school district citing residency issues. In light of my petition for a written notice, the school district informed me over telephone that my kids were not permitted to go to school. In the morning, my kids were prohibited from going inside school.... Read more »
You need to bring in all your documents and the contract that you signed to an attorney for review and advice. Never, ever sign a contract without doing 2 very important things.
