1. Dress Code: Every school district and individual school has a different dress code, and the dress code changes from year to year. Dress code policies can be more that just an annoyance, they can translate into discipline and attendance issues. Many schools will send students home with improper attire or send students to detention.

2. Attendance Policy: Review in advance of any known absences what documentation will be required to consider missed school as "excused." Too many unexcused absences can result in remediation for the child and truancy court for the both the child and their parents. Fifteen or more unexcused absences in a semester may result in you and your child being called before truancy court, facing criminal charges.

3. Contraband Policy: The Code of Conduct book lists items that may otherwise be considered harmless as objects that can result in suspension or expulsion and possible criminal charges for your child if brought to school. Besides weapons, students are not permitted to bring any medications, simulated weapons, pointed instruments (like nail files), household tools, lighters or matches.

Back to School

It is (almost) every parent's favorite time of year: Back to School!
While parents are adjusting to new schedules, activities, homework, and the millions of papers they have to sign, most parents forget to review information that could potentially keep their children (and themselves) out of the principal's office. Here are a few things that you should review with your child at the beginning of this school year to make it smooth and easy.

Welcome to the Jordan Law Blog.  Here you will find our legal analysis on current events as well as some helpful how-to guides written by our senior attorneys to assist you through criminal defense, family law and academic hearing issues.  

Please check back every few weeks for updates and new articles and feel free to leave us a comment on the post, we love hearing from you!

4. Code of Conduct Violations: The Code of Conduct provides information regarding prohibited behavior on campus and possible consequences for that behavior. As most students don't understand what qualifies as harassment, bullying, cheating, causing school disruptions, or gross insubordination, it is a good idea to review these behaviors and their potential consequences with school aged children. Violations of the Code of Conduct may result in suspension, expulsion, or criminal charges.

5. Internet and Electronics Policy: Now that most students have cell phones, schools have very strict electronics policies in the classroom to ensure that learning is not disrupted. Students should be aware of when cell phones are permitted in the classroom, and what internet sites they are allowed to visit while using school technology and school wi-fi.
Hopefully, your students will have a successful school year keeping these tips in mind, but if your student faces a violation of the code of conduct, an academic hearing, or possible expulsion, call Jordan Law at 407-906-5529 to discuss your options, because the best defense is a good offense.
