Thank you for the additional information
Initial post: our high school contracts with a private company for its cheerleader program my granddaughter signed up last fall and got into trouble and the high school displinded her with 20% of her cheer taken away than the private company said she is kicked off completely and they took her clothes away all of her gear which cost me 635.00 and said we will not charge you the separation fee off 750.00 now she wants to try out again and the school says fine but the private company says no because we have a money dispute with them and its a liability issue with them.
Your question: do they have a legal right to keep my granddaughter out of high school cheer because the grandparents have a money dispute with them
Response: No, they do not have any legal right to keep your granddaughter from participating simply because you have a fee dispute with them. I do not see any liability here just because there is a fee dispute. If the school says it is okay for her to participate, then she should be allowed to participate. If the private company is not allowing her to participate, then she needs to speak with the school first to try to resolve the issue. Then if the school fails to resolve the issue, she may consider getting a local lawyer that handles school issues to assist her with dealing with the school. The school usually pays attention when a lawyer gets involved. You can use the following web sites to find local attorneys that handle education/school issues:
