If your son is being harassed in school you need to start with a meeting with the principal and present evidence of the bullying and harassment to them and inform them that the state law mandates that they enforce their anti bullying policy and if they refuse then your next recourse would you would need to contact the state bar and ask them for the education law attorneys in your area to assist you because your only other recourse would be to sue the school to force them to enforce their policies.

I did talk to the principal on enforcing the policy all involved. She says she cant tell me but my daughter told me those kids are back at school and my son is suppended at home. Or the bulling are older kids I went and told them my sons cloths are full of mud and shoes or making him eat mud other kids saw or these kids brag. I told them to enforce the rules or I will call the cops because I found out they will take them she said she will deal with it. Well thats aoutomatic suspencion those kids dint get suspended. From then on some of the staff treated my son driffrent, and let other kids see that nomatter if good or bad he will be at Falt and the same time treat my girls diffrent like they are not wated their by staff. Do I have a case so I could get with Jag. I really want all these to stop and my kids not feel bad and not wanted. Other with buss driver can I press charges or something I talk to her but she gets aggressive I live messeges with her supporvisor for two months first call I got he said I never call him and will invistigate and never did anything. Because onece I saw her road rage with my kids on the buss I address it she dint listen now she gets him suspended after he hasnt taken the buss a week.

At this point, if the school did not enforce their policy, then your next step is to the school board/superintendent of schools. If the board/superintendent rules against you, then you would need to consider proceeding to court against the school to get the rights for your child. However, the big problem you have is you are not at school so you do not know exactly what your child is doing, all you have is his word, so you need to do a bit more digging first to try to get some evidence that they are the ones coming after him and not the other way around.
