Public school refuses to allow girl with epilepsy bring service dog to school

Wednesday, June 4, 2014

A public school in Sherrard, IL is refusing to allow a student’s service dog to accompany her to school. Kellsey McGuire has epilepsy, and Jasper, her service dog, is responsible for alerting others when she begins to have a seizure. McGuire started bringing Jasper to classes in January of this year, but was later informed by the school that she had to stop. According to her family’s attorney, this is a violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act’s rules regarding service animals.
