That probably depends on whether you are a student or an employee of the school. If a student, look for a "school law attorney" if you were an employee, look for a "sexual harassment attorney" or "sexual discrimination rights attorney" Good luck, my friend.

This is a general response to a question for basic information and is not legal advice. Legal advice can only be given when all of the facts of your situation are discussed with a lawyer, which we have not done..

This comment is not to be construed as legal advice to your particular situation because there are many factors that influence legal counseling- this is simply a comment.

Without knowing any facts about your case, if you're an employee of the school, then it may be wiser to speak with an employment discrimination attorney. If you're a student, then it seems more reasonable to speak with an education/school law attorney.
An employment discrimination attorney who has significant experience handling sexual harassment and race discrimination cases against schools, colleges or educational institutions. The requirements for bringing claims against schools are different from bringing claims against corporations. The internal grievance procedures for lodging your complaint of discrimination must be exhausted, every step, before seeking external redress in the courts. In other words, you should follow each step to resolve the complaint with the school, before bringing a lawsuit. The failure to exhaust the internal steps will likely result in your suit being dismissed. There are other quirks that you must be made aware of when suing a school. Consult with an attorney immediately as strict deadlines are in play.
