In 2011, the Connecticut General Assembly made sweeping changes to the state’s education laws, including a radical revision of Connecticut’s bullying prevention and intervention laws, adding gender identity and expression to the list of protected classifications, and imposing significant new responsibilities on school districts with respect to child abuse and neglect reporting and the obligations on districts to conduct pre-employment reference checks.

Our school law attorneys will discuss the impact of these changes on the policies and procedures for districts and field the difficult questions about the changes required by these new legal requirements.

We will discuss the following topics:

  • Bullying, cyberbullying and new prevention and intervention requirements
  • Gender identity and expression discrimination
  • DCF reference checking and child abuse reporting requirements
  • Truancy laws
  • Teacher certification and non-renewal

Coffee and a light breakfast will be served.
