Education Law Questions? Ask an Education Lawyer
Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.
You would have appeal rights to the superintendent or a hearings officer.It does not appear he did anything wrong here, the title was added to the list by the other student.This amounts to guilt by association.I would escalate this above the principal here as it sounds like they are not giving a fair resolution to all of this.
This needs a real look at what exactly your child did here, it doesn't fit the punishment.Your child did not plan any participation in the process.If you have no luck here with superintendent, you indicate you have already contacted him, then you would need to consider your own lawyer and a lawsuit.I can understand your frustration here, this is guilt by association without any prrof your child did anything wrong here.I would not let this continue, a lawyer can make sure his rights are respected and a fair disposition here is the goal.
I appreciate the chance to help you today.I hope you can pursue a fair outcome in all of this, you and your child deserve that.
Thanks again appreciate the chance to help you and the best.
