School Discipline Law Has Changed Over the Summer

Our brand new Massachusetts Law About Student Discipline webpage brings together information about the laws and regulations that all public, charter and virtual schools must implement after July 1, 2014.  These changes result from the passage of Ch. 222 of the Acts of 2012, "An Act Relevant to student access to Educational Services and Exclusion from School."

Massachusetts Continuing Legal Education is offering a seminar to familiarize interested parties about the changes as the new school year approaches.  The announcement for this seminar summarizes the main features of the new discipline environment.
