"Special Education Law 101: Student Rights & School Responsibilities"
Saturday, September 24, 2016
Hosted by Southern University Law Center
2 Roosevelt Steptoe Dr. Room 130
Baton Rouge, LA 70813

This session is Free and open to the public
September 24th from 10:00am-12:00pm

State and federal law recognize the right  of children  with  disabilities to  receive a "free  appropriate public education" in the form of special education and related services. However, it can be difficult for both  parents and educators to determine: when a child's disability meets eligibility  requirements for special education services; what those services (typically in the  form  of an Individualized Education Program or "IEP") might consist of; legal complications around disciplining students with  disabilities ("procedural safeguards");and the legal rights and obligations of both students and educators related to the administrative relief processes.

"Special Education Law 101: Student Rights & School Responsibilities" will provide both the public and Bar members with an overview of the laws and procedures relevant to special education. Speakers are scheduled to  include  children's  advocates, Department  of  Education representatives, school board counsel, and special education  administrators.
