May 3, 2016

This Legal Seminar is designed to provide principals and other school administrators both knowledge and strategies to successfully navigate the treacherous legal waters of social media, bullying, and Title IX requirements.  In ever increasing amounts, these three issues seem to be challenging educators and requiring more of their time.  Providing a positive learning environment becomes more difficult when students are bullied through social media.  Learn the ‘do’s and ‘don’ts’ in taking action in this legal arena.  Since technology and court rulings are quickly evolving, you need to get the latest legal advice from a highly regarded legal firm.
