The Lower Hudson Special Education Task Force is proud to present Codes of Conduct and Rights & Responsibilities of Students with Disabilities Given the variety of learning models (in-person, hybrid, remote, etc.) this school year, school discipline and expectations for student behavior look different. Join us for a panel presentation encouraging communication and understanding among stakeholders in special education around school Codes of Conduct. This Zoom webinar panel presentation will address issues such as: • What is a Code of Conduct? • How can students and families learn about students’ rights and obligations under school Codes of Conduct? • What happens when there is a violation of the Code of Conduct? What protections and supports must be afforded to students with disabilities when faced with the possibility of school discipline? • What is a Manifestation Determination anyway? • How can the Dignity for All Students Act (DASA) protect students? Panel participants: Dr. Lisa Brady, Superintendent, Dobbs Ferry UFSD Stephanie Burns, Esq., Member, Keane & Beane, P.C. Stefanie Shabman, Esq., Legal Director, Student Advocacy DATE: January 21, 2021 TIME: 6:30 p.m. - 8 p.m. Click HERE to RSVPIf you have problems registering, please call: 845.228.7457 x1108 or email jbaumann@putnamils.org Sponsored by: The Lower Hudson Valley Special Education Task Force
