Peter Munsing's answer See if they will let you out as they held it out as tax deductible and it's not. They should know better. You are paying bricks and mortar tuition for an online course. Request a termination in writing. Hard copy not just email. If they don't give it file a complaint with the consumer division of the California AG's office and also the Department of education; also the Federal Trade commission.
Kathryn Hilbush's answer I suggest that you consult with an experienced family law attorney in the county where your children reside. It would seem that your recourse is to file to modify the custody order, perhaps even request custody, but it's hard to know whether that's something you can consider without being able to discuss the situation in detail.
Peter Munsing's answer Technically that was a battery. However assuming that the physical injuries are relatively minor, depending on what was going on jurors may not be too impressed. A good starting place is the Education Law Center in Phialdelphia.
Peter Munsing's answer Contact the Education Law Center in Philadelphia & Harrisburg.Generally, you request an IEP. If the assessment you refer to was the IEP, your IEP should tell you about your appeal rights. In the meantime, there are programs such as the Center For Talented Youth that have advice in general.
Jennifer Price's answer Generally, schools define "absence" as including not being physically present AND being late after a certain number of days. All schools are different, but many schools will use consistent tardies as being absent. If your child is consistently tardy (even by a few minutes), then, yes, the school can begin to count the tardies as absent.
Jennifer Price's answer It depends. In theory, he should be enrolled in the school where you, as parent/guardian lives. Since your living situation is temporary, however, he could probably remain in the school district he's in. There are many circumstances that could affect the decision as to whether you're a resident of one county or another, other paying taxes. If the school found out about your living situation, they could request tuition (or tuition reimbursement). In such a case, you should contact a lawyer,...
Jennifer Price's answer It depends on the context in which the information is given. If the teacher is telling students this as a suggestion or an option of something they can do, it more than likely would not violate any laws. If the teacher is requiring or mandating students to pray, then the teacher would probably in violation of the law. It's also unclear as to whether the students face repercussions for not praying. Again, if the teacher is telling students to pray, students don't pray, and there are no...
Lisa Marie Vari's answer Unless one parent has been awarded sole legal custody, both parents share legal custody of their children. Legal custody is the right to make important decisions that impact children regarding education, religion, and medical care. Thus you both have say in where your daughter attends school.

Jennifer Price's answer In Pennsylvania they would have to consent to the recording. If the school is bringing their lawyer, you should have yours. Otherwise, after the meeting, do a follow up email with all the people in the meeting included in the email, confirming everything that was stated and agreed upon. This will help in the event of future litigation.
Jennifer Price's answer Yes, this would be assault. Assault is when someone either attempts to cause or actually causes bodily injury. Sometimes, a person can be charged with assault and then the prosecutor will reduce the charge down to harassment but to answer your question, yes, this would be an assault. As far as the second part of your statement about the burden, if you mean they said they couldn't meet their burden of proof, I would assume that means there were no witnesses. In such a case, it becomes a...
Kathryn Hilbush's answer The children don't make the decisions - the parents do. Since the parents share legal custody, they're supposed to make the decision together. If they can't agree, then one of them is going to have to ask the court to make the decision for the family.
Dawn Padanyi's answer Just based on your question along, it doesn't appear that you were performing any work for the school during your leave warranting compensation. If you have an employment contract, look to that document to see if it lays out any reason that an employee would be paid while on leave, perhaps look to your union rep, if you have one, and then contact a local attorney for a private consultation.
Jennifer Price's answer No. If a student is receiving Title 1 services, that means they may be at risk of failing, which could affect the Title 1 money the school receives from the federal government. In order for a child to be identified as qualifying for special education services, a school would have to notify the parent of wanting to test the child to determine whether the child has a disability. The school must receive parental consent in order to conduct the testing, or go through with a special education...
