more or less the chain of command goes(and this isnt 100% true but works for MOST cases)I talked to an attorney, he gave me some pointers, I didn't think about the School Board, and if I get expelled, I'm out of the house. Probably moving to North Carolina.
I hadn't thought about the school board.
things USUALLY go best if you take things step by step up the chain of command though i have minimal problems with the idea of skipping the superintendent in most cases unless its a teacher issue as the principal doesnt always answer directly to the superintendent, especially in small rural schools. however what it all comes down to is that the school board IS THE BOSS of the school....right or wrong school boards can override most anything anyone employed in the school does. so if you happen to have a bright school board, this can be resolved easily without a lawyer, if you have an idiotic one than..........well if yah want to fight it you'll need a lawyer but it shouldnt be hard to find one to take the case......however i see no reason to hire a lawyer unless the school board turns out to be idiots........
