I was recently denied the ability to chaporone with my kid in AA county Maryland. I was convicted of a misdemenor drug offense in 2008 and my record was cleared according the state. The background check from an independent company said the crime was still their and I was denied. I am fighting this. I have spoken with reporters the priniple and office of school security.

They said I could not chaporone for 10 years!
Unitl my son is in seventh grade.
