Getting It Write: Student Handbooks In General And In The COVID-19 Climate
May 6, 2020 - 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM ET - SHPC Webinar
Is your student handbook up-to-snuff with best practices and legal standards? Does it have all the bells and whistles for electronic communications and interpersonal misconduct? Does it comply with applicable state-specific requirements? Does it reflect best practices? Does it address the common traps for unwary schools – like re-enrollment issues, students 18 and older, parental comportment and divorce issues? Did your school accept a federal loan and now need new policies to be in compliance? In this interactive and lively webinar, Sara Goldsmith Schwartz will discuss how to prepare and update the ideal student handbook for your school. Attendees will receive a model table of contents to use in preparing an optimal student handbook.
Sara will also address several of the unique issues arising in the COVID-19 crisis, such as: remote learning, communicable illness, COPPA, and Title IX and other policies in light of federal loan requirements.

• Acknowledgments And Disclaimers
• Electronic Communications And Social Media
• Bullying, Cyber-Bullying and Sexting, And Other Interpersonal Misconduct
