The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted school districts across the state in ways that seemed unimaginable a few weeks ago, but no matter the circumstances, school districts remain obligated to provide a free, appropriate public education (FAPE) to their students.
Trevor Hall talks about the importance of establishing a Special Education Alternative Dispute Resolution Process to ensure all students, including special education students, receive FAPE in the new world of online learning.
Join host, David Torres, as he broadcasts a webinar discussion conducted by special education attorneys Geneva Taylor and Trevor Hall discussing COVID-19 Closures and how to provide FAPE to special education students while avoiding pitfalls that lead to litigation.
