School Law Boot Camp for School Administrators-Day One: Student Rights Including HIB Update-New Regulations Effective July 1, 2018


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 Including the HIB Update with new regulations effective July 1, 2018, Employer and Employee Rights, and Special Education.

Day One: Student Rights Module on Wednesday, August 8th.
The Student Rights module will focus on student rights and responsibilities, including constitutional rights such as freedom of speech, disciplinary actions, social media, 24/7 rule, student athletic contracts,  transgender rights, and a special emphasis on the new HIB regulations. We will go back to the basics and move forward to review relevant school law cases. This interactive workshop will include a mock disciplinary incident where we will walk you through the disciplinary incident up to a board hearing. We will apply the law, review the legal standards and discuss proper investigation documentation.

Registration includes morning refreshments and lunch.
