If you have a service dog can a teacher disallow having the dog in class. Even if it is trained and crucial to your health?
The dog and I will get one very soon and sometimes there is a need. These dogs can anticipate certain problems like Epilepsy, PTSD or muscle loss. I collapse because my muscles go weak. I know one day school it will be academic.

Registered service dogs are allowed everywhere. Your teacher cannot kick out your service dog or discriminate against you because of your service dog. When it comes to service dogs they are only legally allowed to ask these questions: Is the dog a service animal required because of a disability and what work or task has the dog been trained to perform. You are not required to answer anything else.

Then stay home if you have all those problems. Dogs are not EMTs, doctors, or nurses. They can't help you if you're having a seizure.

They CAN kick you out for having the dog if there are people who are allergic, fear full of the dog or its not a real service dog and is not behaved or trained
Dogs can't detect anything, they simply pick up sub conscious clues, nothing more.
PTSD is not a disbailty and sounds more like you have a fake service dog and want to take it to school which won't be allowed. Leave the fake service dog at home. You clearly don't need one any way since you've gone through school and life just fine for years with out one

Your parents may have to contact the school first and let them know that you will require some accommodations.
The teacher can only kick the dog out if he is unhousebroken, acting unruly or displaying aggression.. Service dogs can be asked to leave ANY public place for those reasons.

If your dog is a real service dog, and task trained to be a seizure detection dog, then that is a different thing. And I highly doubt that you have real PTSD - that is a legitimate use of a specially trained dog. Veterans who have seen horrific things in combat have PTSD - so are some people who have been through a terrible thing. You will not find a dog that is both a seizure detection dog AND a dog for real PTSD. Your parents will need to discuss this with the school administration who are legally allowed to ask what tasks the dog can do for you that you cannot do for yourself. Sounds to me like you want an emotional support animal. They do not have the same access rights that a real service dog does. Leave your pet at home.
And by the way - even if you get your supposed service dog to be allowed in school, there are things that can get the dog kicked out. Barking, showing aggression, urinating/defecating indoors, running around, grabbing food or items from other students - that will get your dog banned from school - legally.

The only reason a teacher can kick your service dog out of the classroom is if the dog misbehaves.

These dogs CAN'T automatically detect seizures, etc. They are highly TRAINED to do so. So unless someone is professionally training this dog it won't be anything but lay there and be a dog.
PTSD is also NOT a disability that warrants a service dog. Service dogs are trained to do things the owner can't do. Providing comfort is an Emotional Support Dog and they are just PETS that do not have Service Dog access rights.
How have you managed to survive in school without a dog for how many years now and now you suddenly "need" one?
Oh and FYI - one doesn't simply just show up at school one day with a dog they claim is a Service Dog. Their parents would have to talk to administration and provide PROOF that the dog has been trained to assist its DISABLED owner to be allowed on school grounds.

True seevice dogs (not emotional support animals) are legally allowed anywhere. The school may have to make some allowances, restrictions, or adjustments if there is someone with allergies to ensure they also have a safe space.

Call the schoolboard with a request and a copy of documentation from your doctor and the dog supplier.

you should be able to take a service dog everywhere
