Important school and district administrator/educator training on student discipline issues next Friday in Lexington

Do you understand student rights in disciplinary situations?  The popular KSBA Student Discipline Conference will answer all your questions Nov. 16 in Lexington at the Clarion Hotel.

Learn the current legal status of student rights in situations involving search and seizure, student expulsion, off-campus activities such as cyberbullying, Miranda rights, and special education and section 504 discipline. 

It is critical that school district administrators understand student rights in disciplinary situations to have immunity if the district or the individual is sued.  Courts expect school administrators to understand their responsibilities for student rights in such situations. The information in this conference can keep educators and supervisors from being caught off guard.

Registration is $200 per person and includes six hours of EILA credit as well as approved KSBA credit for board members.  The first session begins at 8:30 a.m. and the conference will close at 4 p.m.  No cancellations are possible, but substitutions may be made.
