Board of directors persuaded to overturn client's expulsion from Chicago International Charter School

Clients Client J.B.

Emma Salustro of Jones Day Chicago, persuaded the Board of Directors of the Chicago International Charter School to overturn the expulsion of our client ("J.B."), a ward of the state. Emma represented the client during the fact-finding meeting/expulsion proceeding in November. The fact finder recommended expulsion to the Board and the Board approved the recommendation. In December, Emma presented an oral appeal to the Board of Directors, seeking to have the client's expulsion overturned. The Board decided to overturn the expulsion, expunge the client's disciplinary record and allow the student to re-enroll at Chicago International.
