Customer Question
Long Beach school district in...
Long Beach school district in California... I wanted to know if I can possibly get my child's school in trouble for tampering with her suspension papers after I signed them. I do have both copies the original states she was suspended for causing harm to an individual. However the second copy i picked because I lost the first one states the original reason and also hate crime. The reason I realized this was because I found my original copy few days later. . Is there anything I can do? If so where do I start?

Principle called me in office I signed the paper and was on my way home
Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

Thank you very much for your patience. I'm sorry to hear about your situation. Generally, the Education Code here in California requires that if a student is going to be suspended, they are entitled to at least notice and a hearing in most situations. If a student is charged with something, and a suspension notice is drafted to then later changed, without notice to you that it has changed, then this would be a violation of the education code. You may be able to file a complaint with the school district using their Uniform Complaint Procedures or you may be able to file a complaint with the California Department of Education. If you reference Cal Education Code Section 48900, that'll get you in the right direction.

What other questions did you have for me today that I can help you out with:-)?

Is there any time limits when filing with the department of education?
Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 7 months ago
I believe it's two years, but without seeing the exact thing with which she was charges, I can't tell you for sure. I would recommend doing it ASAP. Did you have any other questions for me?

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.
