RENO, Nev. ( & KRNV) -- The parent of a special needs student who received a trespass warning in May said the Washoe County School District violated its own policy.

Larry Dailey appeared at an appeal hearing on Thursday at the school district headquarters. Dailey said he showed up at the school district on May 8 to talk about a concern he had with school police. He ended with a trespass warning and school district headquarters went on lockdown.

But Dailey said the school district's own policy required a supervisor listen to his complaint that day, which he said did not happen. Dailey said he will not stop fighting for his special needs daughter. "I have not only the right but the responsibility to do that. It's horrible that it leads to a place like this. But I'm proud to do it and on my death bed, I won't say I should have gone back one more time. I will have done everything," Dailey testifed.

Larry Dailey was also cited for trespassing in 2013, but after that incident, the school district eventually apologized and paid Dailey $17,500.

The school district has five days to issue a ruling on his appeal.

Do the elected members of the school board sit in on these appeals? If not,WHY not? It's their policy under discussion!

It was so uncalled for what the school did to this parent. I'd be boiling mad too if they did this to me and my handicapped daughter. They're just to big for their own britches! Time to take that board down a few notches until they can see reason again! Gad, the high and mighty school board, I could see it in their faces during the televised news cast. I feel sorry for Mr. Daily and his daughter being bullied by the board.
