On October 17, 2017, Lisa Banatoski Mehta and Peter J. Maher will co-present sessions at the CABE Legal Issues 2017 Workshop.

Lisa’s session, “Hot Legal, Labor and Legislative Topics: A Review of Case Law, Agency Decisions, and Legislative Action Impacting Schools” will focus on an examination of recent case law and administrative agency decisions and actions. Presenters will discuss decisions and awards issued by Connecticut courts and State Agencies, including, SDE, FOIC, the State Board of Labor Relations and the State Board of Mediation and Arbitration. And, saving the “best” for last, stay tuned for the inside scoop on action or in-action at the Connecticut General Assembly.

Peter’s session, “Expulsions by the Numbers, Draft Guidelines for the Education of Expelled Students” will review 2016 legislation enacted by the Connecticut General Assembly requiring SDE to adopt guidelines drastically increasing the amount of instruction to be delivered to expelled students. This session will also include a detailed analysis of the proposed guidelines as well as a look at cost and other barriers to implementation, what alternative education programs are available, and what school districts can do to support ongoing efforts for substantial revisions to these burdensome standards.

When: October 17, 2017 from 8:30 am – 12:00 pm
Where:  Inn at Middletown, Middletown, CT
