Legal Answers
Q. my son told me he was molested 2 years ago by another kid. the bus and the school failed to notify us what can we do?
A: Do you have reason to believe that the bus driver or school or school district was aware your son was molested by the other child?
Q. There is a group of teachers being bullied by our principal. We have gone to HR several years with the same complaints.
A: What is the nature of the bullying? Please provide more detail. Thank you.
Q. My sons school has not followed the bulling policy by legislation. What are the next steps?
A: Regarding the bullying issue you could file a formal Harassment, Intimidation Bullying (HIB) complaint with the District. Depending on the nature of the bullying and the District's failures you may have a viable negligence or Section 504 lawsuit against the District. If the District failure to follow your son's IEP resulted in a denial of FAPE, you could file a due process complaint against the District. I would need more facts to provide additional analysis for either issue.
