My gh school aged daughter is applying to a new private

My high school aged daughter is applying to a new private school for next year. I have requested that her transcripts and letters of recommendation be sent from her current private school to the school to which she is applying. Her current school says that under FERPA they cannot release her records until they also have her fathers written consent. I have never encountered this before in all the years I have been requesting my daughters educational ( and medical) records be sent to a third party/organization. Her father and I share joint legal custody. my understanding of FERPA is 1) that it only applies to schools receiving federal doe funds, 2) that records must be released at the request of either parent, and 3) that a school does not even have to meet consent requirement if records are requested by a school to which the child is applying. Any clarification would be appreciated. Specifically, is it correct that FERPA requires both parents to consent for release of records to a school to which she is applying?

Greetings! I have a friend who lives in San Fran, CA. She

Greetings! I have a friend who lives in San Fran, CA. She had letter 10 years from an attorney office saying she owned $4,500. She sent them a letter and stating that it was her, just happened to have the same name. 10 years later which is not, they put a lien post judgement against her property. She consulted attorney, and it will cost her about $10000 to clear her name. Is there any other way to clear her name without costing her much. Thank you!

My ex (mother of my child) has given my child serotonin

My ex (mother of my child) has given my child serotonin medication and my ex willingly admitted that she did not inform me. My child has been taking this medication for a few months until I found out. I feel this is endangering the welfare of a minor. Please define this. The medication has some of these precautions:Taking MAO inhibitors with this medication may cause a serious (possibly fatal) drug interaction.The risk of serotonin syndrome/toxicity increases if you are also taking other drugs that increase serotonin.This drug may make you dizzy or drowsy. Do not drive, use machinery, or do any activity that requires alertness until you are sure you can perform such activities safely. (Note: my daughter just got her license and driving while on this medication)This is what I fear: "My daughter had to go to the hospital and the doctor would ask me "Is your daughter on any medication", I would have said NO. Because I was not told my daughter was not on medication, the doctor might have given her my daughter a dangerous and harmful medication that would negatively react with the serotonin medication she is taking."And all of this because my ex was viscous to me and did not inform me that my daughter is on medication.

Ely,This one kind of crosses family law and educational law.I need to know the TEA citations that deal with a disabled person (ADHD, and/or Special ed) being accused of being a bully and suspended without any hearing or anything. What he did was just the expression of his ADHD, and not violent. I am going to push back to the school, but I need help.

A year ago I sent my 15 year old daughter to Alabama from California

A year ago I sent my 15 year old daughter to Alabama from California to live with her aunt and uncle. I signed a temporary custody document. Her father who lived in Florida, who she had not seen since she was newborn, came and took her from them. I let it go because I wanted her to have her father in her life. I had no contact with him because he was rotten towards me but I felt confident that she was in a good place. Well he had her living in an abandoned house and kept her out of school for the next 5 months which meant that she had to go back to the 9th grade the following year. Well this past November he ended up beating her up and she landed in the hospital. The police did nothing because he told them that she was lying. He works for the department of corrections. The next day, one of his coworkers came to pick her up at the hospital, gave her $40 and a duffle bag and put her on a greyhound bus to Oregon, where my estranged mother lives. I was not contacted until this week. My daughter does not have a social security card or her birth certificate. My mother has managed to apply for foodstamps and cash benefits, as well as register my daughter in school. My question is,was anything illegal done here? I now live in Hawaii and I am flying in to get her next friday.

I have a 13 year old child with a disability (asberger's) who

I have a 13 year old child with a disability (asberger's) who we believe his civil rights were violated at school. He was bullied in class, asked to be moved, teacher ignored his request (part of IEP), based on hearsay, called security. He was interrogated by administration, coerced and pressured to write a statement (not the other boys). Then 3 police officers interrogated the child as well. All of this went on without the parents knowledge/presence. He was detained for 4 hours before parental notification and then suspended from school for 2 weeks for stating "I will shoot you" to another student who threatened him first. This is a child with no previous school record, has been in the school since Kindergarten, was loved by all teachers and supposedly administration who knew him and had 100% attendance since Kindergarten. The police came to our home asking if we have guns in addition to all of this. We would like to know that based on this if we have a case and would qualify for an attorney. There is a lot more to this, but this is the basis.
