“Every day, in every district, students, teachers, administrators and board members deal with issues that impact the entire community,” said William S. Donio, Esq., Chairman of the Cooper Levenson Education Law Practice Group. “The law is evolving so quickly and becoming so complex, that it’s vitally important for board members and administrators to get reliable and up-to-date information on how they can move forward on these key issues.”

Tues. Oct. 28 @ 4 p.m.
Join Amy Houck Elco at 4 p.m. on Oct. 28 in the Cooper Levenson Learning Lab, one of six Learning Lab areas set up on the exhibit floor for educational sessions. Amy will present “Can they say that? Board Member, Employee and Public Comment Under the Open Public Meetings Act.”
Wed. Oct. 29 @ Noon
Join Wil Donio at noon on Oct. 29 in the Cooper Levenson Learning Lab, where he will discuss “Notices, Agendas & Minutes under the OPMA.” The Sunshine Law guarantees the public’s right to know when its public bodies are meeting, what they are meeting about and what action they are taking on the public’s behalf. At the same time, local boards of education have to ensure student and employee confidentiality and be able to react to new and emergent matters.
Wed. Oct. 29 @ 1 p.m.
Don’t miss Wil and Amy both on Wed. Oct. 29 in the Mock School Board Meeting at 1 p.m. School attorneys play the roles of board members in a scripted presentation about an imaginary board meeting. A leading expert on school law will serve as moderator, identifying “do’s and don’ts” and legal issues.
Wed. Oct. 29 @ 2:30 p.m.
Join us for the post-Mock Board Learning Lab at 2:30 p.m. Wil and Amy will hold discussion sessions in the Cooper Levenson Learning Lab for those who want to know more about the topics touched on in the Mock Board.
