Hello again,
Typically the school would be required to provide a requested accommodation, provided it is not an undue hardship to the school and it is reasonably related to your disability, PTSD.
Instead of trying to pursue this on your own, I would recommend looking for a local attorney to take your case on a contingency fee basis if possible, so there is no fee unless they prevail on your behalf.
You can contact the state bar association for referrals to attorneys who handle disability discrimination cases in education.
I hope this helps clarify the situation for you. My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate my service when I have answered your questions so I will be compensated for my time assisting you. Thank you!

Thanks.,but you did not answer my question. Did school has right to refused to give a student veteran resonable accommodation in class room or not

Hello again,
It is not a yes or no answer unfortunately, but depends on all the facts of your case. Unless they claim it is an undue hardship or the accommodation is not reasonably related to your disability, then yes they should provide the requested accommodation.
The applicable statutes require them to provide the accommodation if you are disabled as defined by the statutes and it is not an undue hardship and the accommodation is reasonably related to your disability.
