Special Education Law with Andrew Faust

April 22, 2021
Your Internet Ready Computer
Special Education
Act 48 Activity Hours

Virtual Presentation

Andy Faust is a widely-recognized authority in the areas of  
special education, student services and child accounting,  
and student civil rights. 

A myriad of complex federal and state laws make providing special education services to eligible students one of the most difficult areas of legal compliance for public school districts and entities.

To successfully navigate these demands, those districts and entities must be familiar with the laws and educate all staff on the intricacies of providing such programs.  Neglecting either opens the district or entity to significant liability exposure.

Join us for a very informative and thought provoking discussion about special education services.
