Dear Readers of The Extra Mile:
Schools are back from Spring Breaks and in the home stretch of the school year. This is an exciting time, but also a time full of unknowns as we plan for next school year. What will the COVID numbers be in the fall? Will the quarantine requirements change between now and then? Will a student vaccine be available? Will remote learning continue to be a requirement? Or even a legal option? As always, we will continue to apprise you of updates in these areas and partner with school leaders to chart the best course for each of your schools.
This season, we also welcome new faces at school board meetings as new board members are seated around the state. Congratulations to all the successful candidates. We welcome you to this newsletter and encourage you to add your new board members to the mailing list
to receive the latest school law updates.
We are pleased to announce the upcoming release of our latest edition of “A School Board Member’s Handbook,” an invaluable resource for new board members that summarizes critical legal issues for school boards. Retainer clients will receive complimentary copies in the weeks ahead. If you are not a retainer client or wish to order additional copies, submit your pre-order today
Finally, speaking of new faces, we are thrilled to announce that Hodges Loizzi partner Jennifer Mueller Rosenberg
gave birth to her daughter Leah on April 1 (no fooling!). Congratulations to Jennifer and her husband, Sam, on the adorable addition to their family!
We turn now to an alphabet soup of legal updates regarding the ADA, FOIA, OMA, and Title IX.
