School disciplinary proceedings have gotten much more complex since most of us were school age. Back then, misbehaving students might receive detention, get sent to an administrator’s office, face in-school suspension (ISS), or out-of-school suspension (OSS). Only the most noteworthy were met with expulsion. As has become the case in many aspects of society, the education system and school discipline has become complicated. The Williams Law Firm can provide an education lawyer to help you navigate the complexities of any school disciplinary issues.
If you or your child is facing a school disciplinary accusation, from elementary school to higher education, consider discussing your situation with an experienced education lawyer. As parents, when a child misbehaves, it is sometimes our first reaction to say, “You’re on your own.” While this approach is understandable, it is not advisable.
It is important to have an advocate on your side, not necessarily to get out of any punishment, but to ensure that your rights are not violated and to hold your school to the proper standard. Contact an education lawyer at The Williams Law Firm today.
