Getting It Write: Student Handbooks

February 6, 2020 - 12:00 PM - 1:30 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?
