Education Law Questions? Ask an Education Lawyer
The school must have a place for your child when school opens.
They cannot ask you to keep your child home (this is very basic Ed. Code law - they never should have even suggested this).
I am very sorry to learn of this matter, and I wish that your child wasn't facing this situation going into 5th grade, but this is when you need to hire a lawyer.
You can find local attorneys using the State and local Bar Association directories, or private directories such as www.AVVO.com; www.FindLaw.com; or www.Martindale.com (I personally find www.AVVO.com to be the most user friendly).
You are welcome, and I truly do wish you and your child the best with this matter.
Thank you for using our forum, and please do not forget to rate my service so that I can receive credit for assisting you.
Thank you again, and again I wish you the best.
