KSB Webinar Series: Special Education
Time & Location
About the event
Since the Supreme Court issued its opinions in Fry and Endrew F. in 2017, the law and landscape of special education law has changed dramatically. Since that time, special education litigation has only continued to increase, and courts have been grappling with these new standards and applying them to novel fact patterns and difficult questions of law. As always, we’ve seen trends that started on the coasts work their way to the heartland, with an increase in requests for independent educational evaluations and specialized placements. Oh, and then there was that whole global pandemic thing, which acted as a stress test on an already strained, under-funded system and put a spotlight on areas of technical compliance. Unfortunately, the hits are likely to keep coming, and it's important for all school administrators as well as those specifically working in special education to be prepared for these continuing challenges. This presentation will take the lessons we’ve learned over the past few years and apply them to the issues you should expect to see going forward.
