Education Law for Teachers
Under normal circumstances, getting accused of a crime is scary, stressful, and humiliating. If you work as a teacher, a criminal accusation could end your career. No matter what you are accused of, you are innocent until proven guilty.
Our team at Landon Law will fight aggressively to protect your rights and your reputation.
Call us today for help with criminal defense.
The EPSB is responsible for investigating and prosecuting all cases of educator misconduct. Every year, the EPSB handles more than 300 disciplinary cases and 250 character and fitness cases. Anyone can report educator misconduct to the EPSB, but these reports are nothing more than allegations.
Our attorneys can help show that you have adhered to the Code of Educator Ethics, every step of the way. We can also help you demonstrate your character and fitness as a teacher or educator under Kentucky State Law.
Education Law for Parents
Children get into trouble at school all the time, but sometimes, bad behavior can lead to criminal charges. For example, one of the most common juvenile crimes is destruction of property committed at school. Minors can be accused of defacing school property with graffiti or otherwise destroying school property or property owned by other students or teachers.
Children can also end up in juvenile court for running away, skipping school, breaking curfew, and disobeying their parents. Landon Law can help you through cases of juvenile delinquency.
Title IX Violations
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 protects students from discrimination and harassment based on sex. Parents can file Title IX claims if their children are harassed or discriminated against at school based on their gender, sexual orientation, or pregnancy status.
More often, however, sexually active students get wrapped up in Title IX claims involving sexual assault and other forms of sexual violence. If your teenager ends up in a “he said, she said” situation, it is imperative to find the truth. Our firm can help.
We can also represent young adults accused of Title IX violations in college or university.
All children deserve a quality education, and IDEA helps make public education accessible to children with disabilities. If your child is not receiving the education they deserve at school, you can file a special education complaint. From there, the Kentucky Department of Education will investigate and host hearings and mediation.
Our attorneys would be proud to help you with your IDEA complaint and represent
you during dispute resolution with the Kentucky Department of Education.
