What is the diagnosis?  Depending on what his behavior is, yes they can take legal action unless he has a plan in order to manage the behaviors and conduct in school. Each district/school is different.

 If he has a diagnosis, I would suggest that you notify the school, in writing, of his diagnosis and request a meeting to discuss accomodations that would be beneficial to him.

What's the diagnosis? I would work with the school for getting a plan in place based on that.

No problem! I thought your son was the one with the impulse control issues, but I wasn't fully sure if I got that right.

My son has a friend with ADHD that had real impulse control problems when he was younger. He would take meds on school days. But his mom also kept him in counseling and sports. She said the sports helped a lot. In fact, that's how my son and his friend met. Both my son and his friend are young teens now, and his friend is one of the politest out of all of my son's friends. You might have some rough years ahead of you, but keep working on it (especially with the professionals) and things should hopefully improve over time.
