Hopefully you can. My son is a senior at a private boys

Customer Question
Hi, hopefully you can...

Hi, hopefully you can. My son is a senior at a private boys catholic school in nj. He has a disability and did have an IEP in public school. Unfortunately, his current school will not follow it. I am wondering if you can tell me if his school receives any state funding, so I know if we have a leg to stand on. The comments that some of his teachers have made are awful. As much as I have tried to address concern with the school, nothing is being done. Can anyone help direct me in any way?

Lawyer's Assistant: Because education law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Christian Brothers Academy, Lincroft NJ

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you spoken to a local attorney or school administrator? What is your ideal outcome for this situation?

I have spoken to the guidance department, the Dean, and one of the Brothers who oversees the school. The Brother was very caring and conveyed that he felt the same as us but apparently his opinions aren't valued highly. The Dean was not understanding and the guidance counselor feels bad but this is how the school is run. I have not spoken to a local attorney because I was told that if CBA doesn't get state funding, I don't have a leg to stand on. I was told this my an educational advocate.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I think this is a good start. Thanks

Good morning and thank you for using JA.
In all liklihood, yes, they do receive some state and federal funding. Under regulations of the U.S. Department of Education, Catholic schools may receive services provided by federally funded education programs. Schools in the Archdiocese generally participate in one or more programs authorized by the current version of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA). These programs provide eligible students and faculty with the following:1. supplemental education for students in reading and mathematics;
2. professional development for teachers, counselors, administrators, and other professional and auxiliary staff;
3. services for English language learners.Please remember to leave a favorable rating (click 5 stars in the rating section on this page). It is the only way that I am credited by JustAnswer for answering your question.
There is no additional charge to you for rating me favorably.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
