Since March 2020, school districts, parents, and students have been navigating through the uncharted waters of schooling during a pandemic after an abrupt pivot to distance learning models. Given the uncertainty of the year ahead, attorneys for school districts are attempting to anticipate and minimize the inevitable fallout.

Presented by Joanne L. Butler, Esq., this program will benefit attorneys representing public schools, charter schools, private schools, and collective bargaining units who are seeking insight into not only the current issues but the obstacles still to come.

Learning Objectives:

  2. Prepare your school board for the impact on finances, including collective negotiations, vendor contracts, and existing and anticipated capital projects
  3. Analyze the impact on employment issues, including evaluations, tenure, sick leave, and family leave
  4. Minimize the inevitable compensatory education claims, including those from both special and general education students
