School & Student Rights
Students have rights with respect to education services. The Legal Aid Society provides early intervention, special education, general education and school suspension advocacy for children in New York City.
How To Get Help
If The Legal Aid Society represents you or your child in a Family Court or Criminal Court case, you can reach out to the attorney for help with education issues.
If you are not involved in a Family Court or Criminal Court case, you can ask for help with your child’s education needs by calling The Legal Aid’s Civil Access to Benefits helpline at 888-663-6880.
