The problem you will face here is that the statutes which provide you with protection from retaliation
for filing an FMLA
request and the other forms of discrimination
you are asserting requires that you bring the claim within a year of the event triggering your right to bring the claim. This is called the statute of limitations, and it bars your right to bring the claim.
You might be able to argue that your PTSD incapacitated you and stopped the statute of limitations from running. However, this is going to be a very hard argument to make, because incapacitation arguments are reserved for those who are found to be legally incapacitated generally (i.e., they are either completely unconscious, or have no ability to act on their own will).
Your first step is going to be filing an EEOC
claim against the school, as you have to obtain a right to sue letter before you will have the opportunity to file a lawsuit and request reinstatement.
The EEOC may be contacted by calling the local field office. You can find the local field office at www.eeoc.gov/field/
