Starting in 1994, the New York State Bar Association joined the New York State School Boards Association as co-publisher of School Law, originally written by Professor William J. Hageny. Since then, School Law has been widely recognized for many years as a valuable resource for attorneys who handle school law matters as well as board members, administrators and teachers.
The information in this handbook, which is primarily presented in an easy-to-use question-and-answer format, has been culled from a variety of sources, including New York statutory and case law, the Rules of the Board of Regents, decisions and regulations of the Commissioner of Education and the opinions of the State Comptroller and the Attorney General, New York and federal laws and regulations, court decisions from all levels of the judicial system, and relevant guidance materials from state and federal agencies.
This book is an invaluable text of first reference, whether you represent a student, teacher, parent, administrator or a school board.
