School Law Boot Camp for School Administrators -Day Two: Employee and Employer Rights and Special Education


Today’s school leaders work in a dynamic, fast-paced school law environment. Each day brings new changes in statute, code and case law. Administrators, whether veteran or new, are challenged to keep up with the changes. In these intensive School Law workshops participants will review current legal standards on Student Rights, Employer and Employee Rights, and Special Education. There will be an emphasis on HIB and recent special education decisions.

Day Two: Employee and Employer Rights and Special Education
Thursday, July 25, 2019, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The Employer and Employee Rights module will focus on employer and employee rights and responsibilities, including constitutional rights such as freedom of speech, disciplinary actions, grievances, tenure charges, non-renewals, and reductions in force, among other topics. This interactive workshop will include mock tenure charges where we will walk you through the tenure charge process, concentrating on the district’s roles and responsibilities. We will apply the law, review the legal standards and discuss proper documentation.
The Special Education module will focus on the district’s obligations under the law for special education and Section 504 Plan students, including an emphasis on development of the IEP, student discipline, HIB, home-instruction and graduation. We will also review the recent Supreme Court Decision and what it means for you and your district. This interactive workshop will include a mock due process petition where we will walk you through the special education litigation process, concentrating on the district’s roles and responsibilities.
