Contains materials pertaining to education, primarily in the New York context. This folder offers resources for parents or students facing Superintendant's Suspensions or trying to obtain independent student status in New York City public schools.
In terms of higher education, post-release, it is important to note that if a person is convicted of any offense involving the possession or sale of drugs (felony or misdemeanor) while receiving any federal grant loan, or work assistance, that person's financial aid eligibility can be suspended for one to two years. If the suspension applies, however, there are ways-like entering a treatment program-to lift the restrictions.
