Your parents would have to go through a proper eviction process to get you out. They would have to give you notice, and then file an eviction action in court. If they don't do that, they could be liable to you for improper eviction. But if they do follow the proper eviction process, they could...Read more »
If you do, you can end up in juvenile detention. Why would you drop out of school? Everyone needs a proper education to be able to earn a decent living and be productive. Without a job, how/where would you live? Will you have health insurance? What if you get sick or hurt? Talk to your school...Read more »
I believe it stems from underlying issues which the school fails to address. Such as depression. But, no one (school counselor or principal ) have tried to speak with him without yelling, and calling me and suspending him. This concerns me.
You should obtain a lawyer prior to going to court for any criminal matter. A local criminal lawyer will be able to tell you the strength of school's case and how best to handle. The earlier you contact the lawyer before court, the better.
You may also want to reach out to a special...Read more »
Talk to your school counselor, parents, family members, and others. You need to finish high school and get enough education to be able to support yourself as an adult. That's probably what they are telling you. You can talk to a lawyer, and the lawyer will tell you the same thing. If you quit...Read more »

Once you turn 18, you are legally an adult and can make your own decisions, good or bad. If you leave, will you have health insurance? Can you afford to live independently, pay for a car, car insurance, etc.? Why are you not graduating? Do you have plans to complete your education? If not,...Read more »
My mom said that her mom has to sign a piece of paper letting her sign herself in and out of school but she's 18 so i don't think she needs her mom's permission. also, can my friend remove her mom from her guardian list or whatever contacts the parents with absences and information. I don't know... Read more »
Isn't the real question that she is missing school? Obviously, her mother is concerned when she misses school. Are you? Is your mother concerned about that? Why is she even staying with you. If she is 18, she is legally an adult and can make her own decisions. But if she is missing school,...Read more »
A teacher lets students pass out tests/ exams after they are graded and in the education documentation for grades. This would violate FERPA right? I know of the supreme court case against the school district for peer grading but the supreme court dismissed it because it was not in the grade record... Read more »
You are referring to Owasso Indep. Sch. Dist. No. I-011 v. Falvo, 534 U.S. 426 (2002). I don't read your facts as a violation of FERPA. Here's why. Under the Act, "federal funds are to be withheld from school districts that have `a policy or practice of permitting the release of education...Read more »
Most GED programs require the child no longer be eligible for public high school education, so the answer is probably no. But, a child with serious issues is also entitled to certain considerations under the law. The school may be required to provide appropriate programming.
With parental permission, the school can allow him to drop out. But, think this through. He must be close to graduation. His future will look a lot better with a diploma, not a GED. There is a difference.
I have never hit her I spanked her times in 3 years. She told us 2 weeks ago the exact same thing about her teacher. She is slow also and says alot that doesn't make sense. Should we be worried. We are a week from having our son and are now worried child services will try to take our kids.
If you are not married, then the kids are not necessarily "our kids." The mother has sole legal custody of the children unless there has been some sort of court order establishing parental rights, or an adoption, etc. Child services will investigate the situation and determine what is necessary...Read more »
The person that struck him thought he threw food at him so this is why he hit my son camera shows the other person hit first my son was grabbed by a police officer before he could do anything but my son was very upset and asked to be restrained so he did not do anything stupid
It is the school district's policy to start a student's high school "graduation clock" based on when they started high school anywhere in the world. When students from refugee camps bring in transcripts showing they have completed any coursework, those credits are honored but the student is... Read more »
It's unclear what your stake in this is. Are you a student? A parent? A taxpayer? A teacher? An administrator? I'm not aware of any provision which would make an otherwise untimely graduation timely, or discount it, simply because the student arrived from a foreign country or refugee camp. The...Read more »
the private schools accept him but we are unsure of guardianship. I'm over 21 years old. I have a job on campus and my family can provide more than enough the financial responsibility requirement. Can a F-1 student be guardian for another F-1 student? I heard that only U.S. citizens could become... Read more »
If you are under 21, i highly doubt you could be your brother's guardian. I suggest you consult with an immigration attorney regarding this matter. Many immigration attorneys including me offer free consultations, make use of the consultations. All the best.
You can...note however that your parents remain responsible for your shelter, food, education, and healthcare even after you turn 18 provided you remain on track to graduate from high school. If you drop out, you will relieve them of this responsibility, and they can put you on your own.
I'm seventeen and we have recently moved out of state about over a month ago. I have before been in trouble with truancy because My doctor told me I have an infection in my body but all days were excused. We have told my public defender about all medical things and we told him we had moved and he... Read more »
You are represented by an attorney, and so it really is not proper for us to discuss your case with you. I suggest you provide your attorney with confirmation from the new school that the child is enrolled, attending, and doing well.
