Today, there so many legal issues concerning students in public schools and school entities.
And certainly, while there is no way to eliminate all these issues from occurring in a school, there are ways to handle them quickly and definitively:
- Student discipline
- Student residency disputes
- Child custody disputes
- Access to and release of student records
- Free-speech issues
- Religious issues
- Dress code issues
- Drug and Alcohol testing of students
- Security issues, including searches of lockers, vehicles or personal belongings
Each of these areas, if not handled correctly, can come back to haunt a district and its employees later. Through swift coordination of the school’s response to regular in-service training and our Pool Counsel service, we have worked to greatly minimize the possible adverse consequences of missteps.
