School Law Focus on Students: Discipline, Equity & First Amendment Rights
Presented by: Cynthia Lutz Kelly & Lori M. Church

Maintaining a school climate conducive to learning is a primary focus of teachers and school administrators.  This seminar will explore student discipline issues ranging from suspension and expulsion to constitutionally protected activity, including the use of social media.  Recent "Dear Colleague" letters from the Office for Civil Rights of the U.S. Department of Education addressing racial inequities in the use of exclusionary disciplinary options and enforcement standards under discrimination laws that apply to students will also be addressed.
