Hire an educational rights attorney--that is the best way to proceed. As for the recording, you'll have to find out if Georgia is a one party consent or two party consent state. In two party consent states like California, it is illegal to audio record anyone without their consent, and doing so, carries with it criminal as well as civil penalties. In one party consent states, as long as the person doing the recording is a party to the conversation, then it's usually okay. However, they could still be in violation of school rules.
