Suitable for all law enforcement, school administrators, teachers and others working within a school system.

Program Description:
Most school resource officers lack sufficient “specialized” training to perform in the school environment and as a result, the potential for improper decisions, victimized students and liability increases in areas of negligent hiring, training and supervision.
Navigating the federal and state laws covering students with disabilities can be complicated and there are an increasing number of court decisions focusing on the constitutional rights of students while on school grounds with most related to seizure/detainment and use of force.
Participants will gain insight into what they need to know related to students with disabilities, what questions to ask when interacting with school officials, parents or legal guardians.
