Track 16: Legal Implications for Leaders
We have become a very litigious society and perhaps this is as evident in our schools as in any other facet of American life. Church and state issues, school attendance, the instructional program, student rights, rights of disabled, torts, defamation, student records, contracts, teacher rights and freedoms, due process rights, discrimination issues, collective bargaining, finance, and property all pose legal challenges for school leaders. Participants will expand their knowledge of the "hot issues" in school law and how they prepare for and proactively deal with the issues.
