land was given to school for football field. school built a new complex a mile away and do not use it anymore. I want to gift it to the city. Does this property revert back to the owner?
I have the perfect attorney answer to your question - "It depends." When one deeds real estate property to another there are several ways to convey the title. Generally, we convey full fee simple title, which means that we are conveying all the interest we have in the property. In such case, the full ownership of the property is conveyed to the other party. If that is what happened, the property belongs to the school and they can do what they like with the property.
Sometimes, however, the "giving or conveying" party, is giving the property conditioned upon that part performing some act or using the property in some whay. If the party conveying the property to the school put "written" conditions in the deed, such as the use of the property for a football field, then if that condition fails, the property might revert to the previous owner. The answer is in the deed. Have the deed and title examined by a real estate attorney. He/she should be able to answer your question very quickly.
I went in and dropped off my oldest sons meds to the school nurse. I didnt find out till that evening he didnt get his pill she gave it to my special needs son the empty bottle was found in his backpack. I NEVER got a call from the school
This is a serious issue, however, one that happens far to often. Giving medications to the wrong student or not giving medications to the student who requires them. In your question you did not mention any medical consequences to either child, so I am assuming that there were none, or that they were so slight that they were not relevant. Without serious injury most PI attorneys would not be interested in filing a lawsuit. I once obtained a small amount (about $3000.00) for a child was was given ADHD medications meant for another student. The key here is to focus upon creating an environment, where this cannot happen again. You have some options. Notifiy the principal and ask for an investigation and report. You might file a complaint with the schoool board office handling professional standards (the people who investigate violations by educational professionals). While they may not do much, the complaint will be in the nurse's professional file. If the nurse violated her responsibilities as a nurse (It certainly sounds as if she did), you might think of filing a complaint with the state's Nurse licensing association. The point is not to "punish" the nurse, but to let the nurse and the administration know that they need to improve their protocol for delivering medications to students. If you do not feel you are getting traction in your efforts to improve the way medicines are dispensed, take the whole issue up to the school board or superintendent's office.See question
I am about to settle and sign our parent plan agreement. We have joint custody (legal and physical) and Currently have 64% custody but after our agreement it will go down to 55% custody ( father gets one extra overnight during the week). My child ...
This is something you should bring up with your CA family law attorney. Generally, the parent with the greater time with the child, selects and enrolls the child in school. If your move does not change the father's rights to visitation, I would say that the father cannot prevent you from moving. The fact that visitation may be a little more difficult would not, I think, violate the agreement (this depends upon the wording of the agreement and the rights retained by the father). You are right, that if this were to go to a judge, the judge will be required to consider the best interests of the child. He/she would have to balance the benefit to the child to have ease of access to the father and the educational benefit of a certain school. The thing that concerns me most, is the fact that judges (and opposing parties) do not like sudden changes to the environment, which could have been revealed and discussed prior to the agreement being finalized. Attorneys have different attitudes about these things and you attorney might prefer to keep that issue under cover until the agreement is signed (again depending upon the language of the agreement).See question

The school has endangered your son's life. The school has an obligation to make all reasonable efforts to keep your son safe and has violated that obligation (duty), when it ignored the doctor's instructions. That violation caused your son serious, life-threatening injuries. It would seem to me that you have all the required elements for a personal injury lawsuit. Remember that each state has its own laws for such lawsuits and most states put some rules in place to protect schools against lawsuits. For example, here in Florida, one must file a "Notice of Intent to sue" with the government, six months before filing a lawsuit. In addition, the amount that can be won is limited. This has the results of discouraging PI attorneys, who are often more comfortable with automobile crash cases. Look for a firm that does things like "product liabiltiy." Such firms are less shy of dealing with the government.
You also have rights under the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and possibly under IDEA. Both are laws which are intended to protect children with disabilities. Although, these laws are most frequently evoked relative to "educational" disabilities, they can be used to assure that the educational program (including sports) is designed in such a way so as to keep your child safe. You would need to speak to an educational attorney about this.

Wow! What a question. You need a good family law attorney. There are several issues here. First, depending upon the state law for majority (when a child becomes of age), your son may be able to withdraw from school himself (the case in Florida). If the child is required to attend school until 18 years (many states), then your husband may have violated the truancy laws, unless he reenrolls your son somewhere. Obvious, they are both defying the courts orders, but if there is a child abuse investigation in process, that will throw another complication into the works and may protect the father. Only a very good family lawyer is going to untangle this mess.See question

Actually, the schools would tell you that this is a family law issue. They are going to accept the child who lives with a parent, more than 50% of the time. The court probably put the 60 day requirement in its order, to provide you the opportunity to challenge the move. If the mother is able to explain that she was forced to more and that it was not, in fact, optional or a choice on her part, then the court is probably not going to beat her up over it. In essence courts hesitate to take away a parents freedom of movement, so, as has been suggested, your best option is to get a good family law attorney and go back into court to change the parental responsibility arrangements (e.g. more time staying with you and you chose the school). Here in Florida, courts do not like parents rearguing the parenting arrangements, so your chances of success may not be good, but an action in court could force the mother into mediation (and expense) , which could result in a more considerate arrangement.See question

I agree with both counsel who have previously responded to this question. In Florida, upon your 18th birthday you become responsible for and have authority over your educational records. That means that you decide whom, if anyone, has a right to see your educational records. Yes, I would inform the district now that you do not want anyone, other than (your mother?), schools that you have applied to, or military (if you have given consent), This way there is less danger that someone will accidentally release your records, This may be your first significant step into adulthood. You do not have to tell him when you are graduating and you do not have to give him a copy of your diploma.
I am sorry that you do not have a better, more trusting relationship with your father. Ask him if he wants to know what you are doing, if he would like to sign-up to pay for college, trade school, and new suit, money for prom night?

My advice is general and each state may have its own rules. Generally, it is not necessary to be the parent, or the legal guardian to enroll a child in school. Most school districts require the child to be an actual resident of the school district. This does not mean that the child must be in that district for a terrifically long time. The key is that the child will be living there AND no where else for some meaningful time. The school will also want the parents to provide authority to someone to make educational decisions for the minor and to enroll her in school. In most instances, a power of attorney, which specifically mentions educational responsibility is sufficient. In any case, the young lady has a right to a public education and there is for the moment, nowhere else where she could go. With the present "homeless" problem, schools are getting better at accommodating children who may be temporarily resident in their districts.
The easiest course would be to communicate with the district's enrollment office. They will tell you exactly what you need. Speaking of the power of attorney, you need that to include medical and emergency authority as well.

What you describe was a massive violation of both your and your parents' rights of privacy. This man had no right to enter your home and search for anything. Even if the police wish to do a search, they must have a warrant issued by a judge. I am sorry you did not have the courage to tell your parents what he did. If you had, he would have learned an important lesson. My hope is that in the years since he has become wiser and more educated in the rights of those under his authority. Unfortunately, I calculate that some 23 years (?) have passed, which means it is far too late to bring any action either criminal or civil against this person.
I know that you are concerned about your son. Your best protection is to raise him to trust you, even when he is afraid of having done something wrong. Teach him to respect authorities (teachers, principals, police), but to understand that there are limits to the authority of these people. Train him to tell you when anyone, adult or child, does something that makes him uncomfortable.
My highschool gym teacher recorded(on his personal iPad ) students working out, he said it was so we could watch it and see how we could improve....
Schools do record children for educational reasons, but most states and localities have rules as to when and where that can be done and by whom. For example, coaches have been filming varsity football for years and the teams do study the films to improve. If the filming may be of young ladies working out, the level of concern certainly increases. If he is truly sharing it with the class, you will be able to assess the film to be sure that the filming is tasteful and appropriate.
In any case, it cannot hurt to have your parents question the practice by speaking with the principal, if only to be assured that the school is aware of the practice and approves of it. There needs to be some supervision of the practice and, I think a review of what is being filmed. It should be filmed and stored on school equipment and not only private equipment. We live in an age where we must learn to be aware of our social privacy and we need to learn to advocate against potential invasions of our privacy that make us uncomfortable.
