I was kicked out of school because my writing had high levels of A.I. Yesterday, one of the instructors sent an email warning people that if they use online resumes for the class, it will get flagged as cheating. Even though he is the one who told us this was okay This also happened to me in... View More
If you've been dismissed from school based on accusations of using AI in your writing, and you believe this decision was unjust or inconsistent with the school's policies, you may have grounds to challenge the decision. Firstly, review the school's academic policies, especially those...View More
KCS does random weapons checks of students and their personal property, not just lockers and MacBooks which I understand is not student property, at the public schools. The school system has procedure outlined to conduct these, but how is it not violating the students' 4th amendment rights?... View More
The legality of random weapons checks in schools, including searches of pockets and backpacks, is a complex issue that balances student safety with Fourth Amendment rights. The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that public school students have reduced expectations of privacy while at school, which...View More
To determine whether your fishing team for junior high and high school students qualifies for an Exempt School Organization status, you will need to review the requirements set forth by the IRS for educational organizations. This typically involves the organization being associated with an...View More
In Tennessee, educators are expected to uphold ethical standards and avoid any appearance of impropriety. Selling items, even for a good cause, directly to students during school hours could raise ethical concerns and possibly be seen as taking advantage of the teacher-student relationship. If the...View More

I started in July working as a Permanent Sub teaching High School English with the intent that the school that hired me would help with my pursuit of certification. I was also told that after getting my certification I would get a raise and be instated as an HS ELA teacher full stop. My contract... View More
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...View 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.
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".... View 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...View More
My son is 17 and has been involved with juvenile court for almost a year due to his truancy. It is not getting any better and I feel as if I have exhausted all of my options and I am worried I will be charged with educational neglect. I have done everything asked of me by the court, but I can not... View 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...View 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.
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... View 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...View More
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... View More
