I agree with Attorney Popovich. You should consult an attorney who focuses on special education matters immediately. From your description of the problem, it appears that your child's safety may be at risk.See question
It is one of the questions related to my special education law class that i need answered.
Generally, "special education" as required by the IDEA does not apply at all to private schools. Public schools are required to identify children who need specialized instruction because of disability, and to develop IEPs for those children that adequately address their disability-related needs. I suggest you consult some online resources to get a basic understanding of the legal requirements that apply to schools. You might start with Wrightslaw.com, which is for parents and lawyers.See question
Is a college required to explain to student the loans they are getting? The admissions representative basically told me to sign in to the loan web site and give my digital signature which would complete my enrollment. I had no idea I had loans th...
I agree with Mr. Popovich. It may help to sit down with a loan officer at the college to review your situation and options. Most loans include allowances for deferring payment afer you graduate if you're not abl;e to find employment for a time.See question

When you reach age 18, you will be considered as an adult under PA law. At that point, you can live on your own and establish a residence wherever you wish. It's not clear what you mean when you say that you are "without parental guidance" and that you are an "unaccompanied youth". If your parents are unable or unwilling to provide support, you may be considered an emancipated youth and entitled to be treated as an adult.See question
my Grade 1 son was admitted at a private school and already spent 1 month, he was not that attentive like other children. the school decided that he must be ejected because the teachers cannot focus on teaching for they had to attend to my son who...
I agree with both of the attorneys who answered your question. I would encourage you to contact an attorney who has experience in education, disability and contract issues. There is also the possibility that the American's with Disabilities Act (ADA) applies to your situation, and would require reasonable accommodations for your son. The ADA wouldn't apply if the school is a religious school.See question
My child receives Special Education service and has an IEP contract. The IEP states he will receive most of his Special Education in a self-contained classroom setting for SED (serious emotional disturbance) children. This classroom setting ...
Based on the facts related in your question, it sounds as though there may be significant problems with the school district's identification and placement of your child. If he has Autism, an SED placement would likely be inappropriate. You may want to obtain private evaluation of your child, either by asking the school district to pay for it or by funding it yourself. I suggest you contact an experienced special education lawyer in your area for a consult. Many lawyers offer a free consultation. If you bring a due process claim against the school district and you win your case, the school district has to pay your attorney's fees.See question
My child received diagnosis almost 2 years ago while attending grade school. The school hired a nurse to monitor my child throughout the day and carry the emergency medication on their person for immediate access of administration. That nurse was...
You have a legitimate concern as to whether the school district is properly implementing the doctor's orders. Your child's diagnosis of Eplipsy most likely entitles him to reasonable accommodations as a child with a disability under Secion 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. If so, he should have a written - and legally enforceable - accommodaion plan. The Plan should incorporate the doctor's instructions. These are referred to as a "Section 504 plans" or, in Pennsylvania, a Chapter 14 Service Agreement. If the school district is not implementing the doctor's orders, I suggest you contact an attorney experienced in special education law for advice and a discussion as to how best to address the situation with the school district.See question
I am trying to add a 'confession of judgment' clause to my contract for school enrollment. Someone told me that is illegal in PA. I can't find it anywhere stating that it is illegal.
Confession of judgment clauses are allowed, but you will need to assure that it is properly drawn, or it could be deemed unenforceable by a court. It would most likely be worth your while to consult with an attorney to discuss the requirements for this type of clause. This is really a contract question rather than an education question.See question
a mentally person cant take a plea so if the judge notice this and still take your plea it not legal to do
It sounds like your question is about the legal capacity, to enter a plea in a criminal matter. I'm not a criminal lw attorney, but my understanding is that the fact that you are in a special education school would not necessarily mean that you do not have the capacity to enter a plea. I suggest you contact the local bar association and set up an appointment for a free consultation with an attorney. You need to discuss your situation with a lawyer to get answers to your questions. If you have an attorney, you should discuss your concern with that lawyer.See question
My children belong to a publically funded Cyber Charter school here in our area. We joined the school before their NEW rules applied to filed trips and up to a few weeks ago thought we were going on a big school field trip with the rest of the cla...
It does appear that prohibiting your child from participating in a field trip as a consequence for exercising a religious right would be unlawful. It's not clear from your question how your objection is religious in nature, as opposed to an objection to having your child sit through the test, but the general rule is that the government cannot decide whether a religious belief is legitimate. Many parents and teachers criticize the PSSA and similar tests, so there is certainly debate over whether it should be required. One inexpensive way of raising the issue is to file a complaint with the Pennsylvania Department of Education. You may benefit from a consultation with a special education attorney to discuss the programming concerns for your other children.See question
