Special education in public schools has always been a delicate balancing act between meeting the needs of the students while keeping costs within the district’s budget.  Litigation for school boards can be very costly, even if the district prevails. What steps can districts take to prevent litigation? What should they be concerned with when student placements are questioned? And how have new laws such as the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act affected special education students? Please join host Ray Pinney as he discusses these and other issues with Nathanya Simon, a school board attorney with the firm of Schwartz, Simon, Edelstein & Celso. An experienced school board attorney with expertise in special education law, she is a frequent presenter at state and national conferences.
