Palm Beach Gardens (PRWEB) February 20, 2013
LRP Publications, educators’ most trusted source for practical and legal education guidance since 1985, today announced the launch of the Special Education Law Retreat With Melinda Jacobs. The Retreat, an intimate east coast event exploring judicial rulings and providing solutions to legal challenges faced by special education administrators, is a parallel event to LRP’s annual Special Education Director’s Summit. Both July 2013 programs, limited to a small number of participants, are designed to meet the needs of upper-level special education overseers and feature two days of rigorous training for strategically overcoming shared concerns.
The Special Education Law Retreat With Melinda Jacobs, July 11 - 12, 2013 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., extends a rare opportunity to learn directly from an experienced, widely popular special education attorney in a small private setting. The Retreat’s program offers targeted training on the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, as well as Individualized Education Programs (IEP) concerns and judicial challenges.
Jacobs, in an open dialogue environment, will focus on the most legally significant issues that are being addressed by the federal courts and how each ruling will affect administrators’ daily duties. She also will explore legally appropriate and effective strategies for working with parents, attorneys and advocates.
The directors-only Special Education Director’s Summit, scheduled for July 18 - 19, 2013 in San Francisco, Calif., will focus on helping directors find strategic solutions to overcoming various obstacles. Participants will be given opportunities to discuss challenges, exchange ideas and network with peers from across the nation. In addition, the Summit will feature national experts discussing strategies for accessing and improving autism program services, overcoming budgetary issues, building capacity among staff and much more. Recognized school attorneys Dave Richards and Julie Weatherly are among the list of expert presenters.
“The Summit and Retreat session topics represent real everyday challenges that high-level administrators must manage,” said Candace Gallo, Executive Editor, LRP Publications. “We’ve chosen the most noted experts in the field to advise attendees and help solve their problems.”
