Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi, My name is***** am an attorney with over 16 years experience. Hopefully I can help you with your legal question.
I am sorry for this dilemma. But not sure I understand your specific question. Do you have a question regarding this?
Well...this depends...is this a public school (state run)? Or a private school?
ThanksIf it is a private school, there are no "due process" rights (due process applies only when dealing with governmental entities). The fact the school receives federal funding is not relevant for this issue.So this will come down to the schools policies on this.Specifically, she should review the schools policies (typically published as a "student handbook" or some similar name).
There is no law that prohibits this (a school can require students to work at the school, for example to help clean) but can only make it mandatory with a written policy. If there is no written policy? Then she has no obligation to do the workPlease let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
