In short, the bus driver stopped short hard enough exiting the school that it threw my daughter out of the seat and she got a concussion. After this the driver stated "now that I have your attention". This has all been confirmed by the school vi...
You would make a claim against the school's insurance. That is correct advice. It sounds like the school is disputing that any negligence occurred, so you face an uphill battle. You need to speak to a personal injury attorney to assess your options. I am updating the practice area designation of this question, this is not really an education law question, it is a personal injury law question.See question
In schools, specifically in orientation to schools, principals will stand on stage and say "bullying will not be tolerated. Bullies will be expelled!" When I was a kid, hearing this made me feel good because I got bullied a lot and I felt like my...
For the reasons Jason already stated, probably not a good idea, especially if you are no longer a student. Yes, you have a right to free speech, but there are (what we all) time, place and manner restrictions. You don't have a fundamental right to express yourself anytime and anywhere you wish. If you are still a student, you would get in trouble; if you are not a student, you would probably be charged with trespass.See question
During middle school (approx. 4 years ago. When I was 14), I reported to my guidance counselor that another student in my grade had sexually assaulted me during class. I was told to go back to class after further discussion that the story needed t...
Sorry, I don't see any basis to sue the school. Unless the boy assaulted you "after" you reported the initial incident, you haven't suffered any harm as a result of the school's initial reluctance. There is nothing to sue over.See question
I was told by the business office of the college that I attended that I have an outstanding balance from the 2016 Summer semester, and I would not be able to pick up my degree or certification. The problem is I was not informed of an outstanding b...
You pay the balance, you get your degree. Sorry, but the situation is no more complex than that.See question
My professional performing arts company had a stage production at a high school and after two weeks of confirming key details for our production, I, the director and owner, was sent a text message hours before the production saying we would not ha...
No chance of getting emotional distress as the injury (such that it is) is not in the nature of a personal injury. As for breach of contract, someone would need to look at the contract. Did you, or anyone from your team, inspect the facilities and equipment before agreeing to put on the show? Does the contract actually specify that such things were to be provided by the facility and be in good working order. Assuming you have a case, I doubt you could recover for the "lost" DVD sales. Assuming you could prove you would have received $2,000 in sales had the show went perfectly, such sales falls outside the 4 corners of the contract.
When it comes to contracts and breach of contract, you have to look at what the other party promised to do.See question
My child has been in a 50/50 custody for years now. School is starting and I want te most stability for my child during this time. Is asking for full custody to much to ask while a child is in school?
A little more background would be needed to assess whether such an option is advisable (how old are the kids, where does the other parent live, etc). The court's primary rule when it comes to custody and visitation is what is in the best interests of the child. One of the primary factors in that determination is to allow the child to have a meaningful relationship and time with each parent. The "stable home life" argument doesn't carry much water absent some instability in the other household. What instability there is was caused by the divorce.
You say your child is "starting" school, so that may be basis for revisiting the custody and visitation. To the degree you have success depends on where the other parent lives and what sort of involvement they really want to have. Have you spoken to the other parent about it? If both parents live in the same school district and both parents want to be active, it will be hard for you to modify. If the parents live in separate school districts, then there is more to this issue about which school the child should attend etc.

I have 2 children by my ex husband one is 5 and one is 2. I have sole custody and my ex has standard visitation. I know my 5 year old has to go when school gets out of school but my 2 is not in school does he still have to go when they 5 year old ...
To really answer, an attorney would need to review the divorce decree/parenting plan. Unless there is some compelling reason why the siblings should be separated, I don't see why the visitation would be different for the two siblings unless different visitation rules are actually spelled out in a court order.
I am updating the practice area designation, this question was designated as Education Law, but it is a child custody question.See question
I recently got moved out of state and had to move in with my dad that I never met before, I'm from Utah and I really want to go back and live with my grandma. My case worker and the Colorado state said it is ok if I do go back but my dad said that...
There is clearly more backstory here that would need to be understood before anyone can really say what options you might have. As a legal matter, a 15 year old doesn't get to "choose" per se, but a 15 y/o input would be considered. But it sounds like there is a heck of alot going on that no one on this forum knows, you have a case worker, etc., all I can say is you may need to consult with an attorney in your own capacity.See question
Hello I went to a school or institute named Sanz school 7 years ago and now the school doesn't exist anymore. I called because they never send me my medical assistance certificate because I need it for any future job. But the problem is that since...
Yes, you still owe the loan. The fact that school doesn't exist today is largely irrelevant. The hard fact is you borrowed money, money was given to the school so you could attend, you attended. Now you must pay back the loan. In this scenario, they don't have to prove you attended to keep the loan valid, you would have to prove you didn't attend.
The odd fact here is that you say they "never" sent you your certificate. Now, all of sudden, that is a problem? I get it, the Dept. of Education has authorized a tax refund intercept so the situation has become real, but it is a little weird that you suddenly care about the certificate 7 years after the fact.
It sounds like you did some legwork to track down someone or some agency that might have the record. When a school closes, there is usually some sort of custodian of records. (not always, especially for these smaller, fly by night, schools like medical assisting, massage, etc). Generally, I would point you to the state's education department or whatever agency overseas these types of schools and see if they have the records or if they know who is the custodian.
At this point, you call whomever is servicing the loan and ask to rehabilitate the loan. That will stop the tax refund intercept.See question
I don't have a job and the financial aid office is now making me pay for fall semester after I already finished the term.
The key fact needed to analyze the situation is why the financial aid was cancelled. As David already pointed out, if you enrolled and attended, you owe the money regardless of the financial aid. The issue is whether the preliminary approval of FinAid was in good faith and the reasons why it was cancelled. There are many legitimate reason why financial aid might be cancelled.See question
