Even if they reschedule the test I can almost ascertain I could find an "expert witness" who will agree that the stress of the entire situation has negatively impacted my scores on those tests.

If the lads are taught the missing week of material and given the test, the district would have more or less put humpty dumpty back together, even if imperfectly.

The best way to avoid being sued for injuring someone is to not really injure them.

Revised March 16, 2018, but I couldn't find anything to indicate what was changed. 60 pages of legalized gobbledygook, and that's their idea of a student handbook? Disgraceful.

I love the end result of no tolerance policies in a sue happy world. We literally have to put 'do not try this at home' on everything. Just having a picture of a gun at schools gets you suspended. I am not sure who to blame other than our judicial system for allowing us to sue for anything we want.

Page 57 Student Handbook

Aquila Blanca

Page 57 mentions no weapons or simulated weapons on school grounds. Plus a link to Lacey Township Board of Education further explains policy concerning weapons. There is no mention of the original zero tolerance policy that started the in school suspension fiasco resulting from student weapons handling on and off school grounds during academic sessions.
