COVID-19 has created a profound impact on the entire world, including the economy, health care system and social functioning.  Indeed, one of the most prevalent impacts of the virus has been on the education of children.  With the abrupt closing of schools in March 2020 for the remainder of the school year, the school system had to learn to adapt to continue educating children while at the same time keeping them and staff safe from the virus.  Now that Governor Wolf has allowed schools to resume activities as of July 1, districts are preparing plans to reopen their doors this fall even while the pandemic still rages on throughout the country. 

This comprehensive course will cover the top three issues facing school districts in Pennsylvania as they plan to reopen including:

  • How to plan and program for regular education students
  • How to plan and program for special education students while still adhering to the mandates of the IDEA and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act.
  • Labor and employment issues facing teachers, administrators and other school staff.

The faculty will provide guidance and advice on how to approach these challenges facing the educational system. They will also discuss the latest updates from the United States and Pennsylvania Departments of Education as well as the Department of Health.

Co-sponsored with the PBA Education Law Section  and the PBA Legal Services for Exceptional Children Committee .

Recorded in August 2020.
