Updating Your Student Handbook

Is your student handbook in compliance?Both private and public schools must meet a myriad of obligations under federal and state law concerning notice to students and their parents regarding nondiscrimination policies, the rights of homeless students, privacy and access rights concerning student records, and several other areas. They must also provide adequate notice of prohibited conduct by students and their student disciplinary processes, as well as due process rights in other areas. This topic will help school administrators and others responsible for development of student handbooks to identify provisions that either must be included to ensure legal compliance with such requirements or which should be included to minimize disputes, maximize clarity, and as a best practice. It includes useful guidance concerning handbook provisions ranging from student disciplinary processes to the rights of students with disabilities, FERPA, McKinney Vento, and a host of other areas. It will enable school administrators and officials to improve their handbooks to ensure compliance, better manage risk, and provide maximum clarity for parents and school officials.
