    Please consider hiring an attorney to assist in in addressing the school deficiencies in your daughter's education. Alternatively, file a complaint with the Oregon Department of Education. The ODE will send an person out to investigate and make recommendations. The complaint process does not cost any money and is an economical way to start. There are at least four special education attorneys in Oregon who can assist you. The IDEA provides due process procedures to address the situation...

    The simplest way to find your answer is to hire a private investigator to run a background check on yourself. The cost for such an investigation will be roughly $50 depending on the investigator and the report/database they use. If you have a criminal record, then you need to determine if you are looking a misdemeanors or felonies and actual convictions. Some lessor convictions may be expunged after a period of time provided there is no other criminal activity. If you have felony...

    Yes and yes. Interestingly, student rights are somewhat less than those enjoyed by adults. School resource officers, often police officers on assignment to a high school campus, may stop and question students without notifying the parent. The rationale is that the schools are in loco parentis and have a greater duty to protect all the kids in its care. However, school districts have been found liable for things like strip searches. The courts have generally held parents should be notified...

    School district authority to discipline is limited. Depending on additional facts, the principal's actions could violate your free speech, but given the context of your comments this may not be available to you. Further, the principal cannot suspend you indefinitely without due process (notice and hearing).

    Truancy may be considered a low level misdemeanor depending on the jurisdiction. Usually truancy laws are enforced where there is a compulsory school attendance law. School use truancy citations to parents to get kids in school, and so they can track attendance for state and Federal money. if your friend enrolls the kids in a home school program and can prove they were enrolled within a reasonable time, then they might be able to avoid the penalty or citation. Of course, look at the local...

  7. I am a student in an adult acting studio and am being harassed by another student. I'm afraid the teacher will kick us both out

    Yes, your school should have a policy on harassment and a complaint form (check your student handbook or course catalog). Talk to the administrative office about this student and the fact that it is interfering with your education. Your teacher may be less likely to kick you out if the issue is coming down from the administration. Additionally, the administration should talk with the offending student which may help curtail the harassment - but only if he wants to remain in school. Remember,...

    Generally, the relationship between a student and a graduate school is one of contract, so look to your catalog, and student handbook for statements the university may have breached. This will give you the arguments and basis for getting your money back.

    Bullying is difficult to stop. I suggest you look at the school board's policies on harassment. There should also be a complaint procedure to follow, as well. Since you have had two meetings on this issue already, you should find an attorney to go with you to meet with the Superintendent. If that does not effect the change you want, then appeal to the school board.

    Start with an inter-district transfer application. The home district will have to approve and the receiving district will have to approve. You will a more substantial reason than social contacts. School district often look at child care, nearby relatives, employment in the district, and other similar factors in helping decide these issues. Also, the receiving district may charge tuition for an out of district student. I would counsel against using an address to establish residency...
