Response: You need to show up at the hearing with an Attorney who handles education and special needs education issues to assist you with the case. You should be prepared to show all the instances where he was harassed and bullied and the school did nothing. That he was only defending himself when the school unfairly suspended him and not his tormentors.

You should be prepared to file an appeal if the school decides on expulsion.

You should also file complaint with the Ohio Department of Education. Click here for information on the complaint process.
