This is a public school, correct? Please tell me:

1) Does your son have a 501 or an IEP plan?

2) What is he accused of to have the school want to expel him?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
The school is not expelling him, we have moved and they say because he no longer lives in Ledyard he has to look for another school 15 minutes away where we live in Groton CT. They won't let him finish his school year out instead. I thought it would be harder for the boy to just up and try to start at another school. They say because of CT General Statue 10- 186 (b)(2) and 4 my son no longer meets the residency requirements. It's only 2 and half months left in the school year and they wont allow him to Finnish it.
Family Lawyer: Ely, Counselor at Law replied 4 months ago

Thank you. I am sorry, but there is no exception here. It sounds like the schools in your area are by neighborhood zones, and he no longer lives within that zone. There is no right to "finish out" the school year; he must immediately transfer to the school of the zone where he now lives. I am so sorry.
