Presented by Julie Weatherly, Esq.

Special education case law not only sets precedent for lawyers, it can be invaluably instructive to school administrators and staff. Decisions show us how and why a district gets into costly legal trouble and the steps it might have taken to avoid it. Practical pointers from real-life cases are essential in enabling you to responding proactively and wisely when faced with similar situations.

In this 90-minute recorded audio conference, noted special education attorney and consultant Julie Weatherly cites examples from specially selected decisions to help you avoid mistakes that can cost your district significant amounts of money and time. You and your staff learn to:

  • Recognize the most common errors that frequently result in litigation
  • Become familiar with ways administrators and staff can help reduce the potential for expensive mistakes
  • Develop child find strategies to stem possibly costly "failure to identify" claims
  • Meet your obligations to ensure parents meaningfully participate in the IEP process
