Q: What are my rights as a parent to a senior who is up for expulsion due to hearsay . She has never been in trouble before.
A: Under most school codes, your daughter will given due process by having an expulsion hearing. Normally, at this hearing, the school solicitor is involved. He may call school personnel or other persons as witnesses. You will have the opportunity at this point, of raising a defense by presenting witnesses or documents or having your daughter testify. I would review all the facts with an attorney and see if it is worth fighting. There are attorneys who handle school code issues, although not many.
