This suit challenged a rule that prohibits anyone with a felony record from volunteering in any capacity in the school. The petitioner is a former convict whose son faced serious medical challenges that required the constant presence of a nurse. The petitioner sought to accompany his son to school when the nurse was unavailable. The school refused.
The ACLU-NH argued that the rule was fundamentally unfair to a parent who posed no risk of harm to children. The ACLU-NH’s brief can be found here. Unfortunately, the petitioner’s son died while this action was pending.
