Thank you for allowing me to answer your interesting question.
Generally speaking a court order will supercede any rule, policy or
authority of a given school district. Most school policies are to
remain neutral where court orders are concerned as in this policy
example from the Lodi Wisconsin school distinct:
LODI SCHOOL DISTRICT
Such a neutrality policy is fairly universal across the US. Where a
court orders a child at attend a certain school (or to do any other
activity for that matter) the court expects him to do that. Should
your ex notify the school and the school try to interfere with the
court order, you would, in my opinion, definitely have a valid
complaint against the school district. NO matter what the school?s
eligibility policy is, you are not only following a court order, you
are bound by it. Legally, they probably could not interfere.
What you have here is basically two different sets of exceptional
circumstances: (1) you have a court order that specifies what school
the child shall attend. (2) you have an unusual situation that can
only be altered by the jurisdictional court. What these two things
mean is that you (and the school district) must adhere to the court?s
order unless and until the jurisdictional court (a) grants the
authority to act contrary to the order, (b) alters, amends or
reconsiders the original order, or (c) sets the order aside.
Make no mistake about it, your situation screams out for formal legal
advice (which we are prohibited from giving in this forum). At first
glance it?s pretty obvious to me that the court?s order has the upper
hand here regardless of what your ex or the school district decides to
do about it, but my opinion is of little importance. You would need to
consult a Florida attorney or perhaps even the court clerk for a
clarification of the court order.
