This course is focused on informing and educating school staff on the topics and practices that frequently involve special education litigation. By a review of the legal foundations and standards, followed by an analysis of case law examples, participants will be able to identify sources of legal guidance, including the risk factors for discussion by school staff when faced with legal situation in their own educational settings. In addition, this presentation will review those topics and practices that may be initiated in general education but have special education implications such as transgender issues, discipline, and responding to school crisis. Finally, participants will discuss and be able to identify possible resolution options in the different legal situations that they may face. Communication of litigation options to key stakeholders, including a rationale for each, will be a component of the resolution process.
