K-12 Student Appeals

K-12 Student Appeals – Students, and their parent, in K-12, in both public and private schools, face a challenging array of problems that can jeopardize a student’s educational opportunities as well as the student’s right to fair treatment. OUR PRACTICE IN THIS AREA IS LIMITED TO THE GREATER KANSAS CITY AREA IN BOTH KANSAS AND MISSOURI.

The firm has represented students and their parents in a wide range of matters, including:

* bullying
* weapons possession
* drug possession
* social media violations
* threats of violence
* acts of violence
* insubordination

The expert representation of students in K-12 student appeals involves having a thorough knowledge of school due process rights and principles, as well as having experience in school district processes and engaging with school district counsel to explore acceptable outcomes, or to advocate for the student at a contested hearing. Students with documented disabilities are covered by special rules that limit the range of sanctions or punishment that can be given to a student.

The firm has extensive experience in cases involving a social media record. We are very familiar with related juvenile law that can apply if a student is being prosecuted in juvenile court along with a school disciplinary prosecution. While we do not practice in juvenile court, we work with juvenile defense counsel throughout the metropolitan area.

Bullying continues to impact students and their parents and we have consulted with many families on options and strategies to stop bullying, including working with school district officials as well as other legal options.

Students in public schools have due process hearing rights which we will enforce. Students in private schools often have the equivalent of due process through published student rights set forth in the school’s STUDENT HANDBOOK. We offer representation at both school district appeals and court appeals.
