Supporting the Virtual Learner in 2021:
The Top 10 Legal Issues

Presented by:
John B. Comegno II, Esq.,
Founder and President, Comegno Law Group, P.C.

John B. Comegno II, Esq.: John is recognized nationally as a leading School Law practitioner and lecturer, representing public and independent schools, as well as education vendors, throughout the country. John has litigated hundreds of IDEA and Section 504 cases. In addition to his practice, John serves as an adjunct professor of law and lectures to educators across the country. His engaging and entertaining delivery, always advancing educational best practices, is widely sought for convention keynotes, professional conferences, and in-school professional development.
Description: COVID19 affected all parts of our lives. Its extraordinary impact caused massive closures, and its effects on education continue to be felt. Schools are in session in new and different models, with few able to "get back to normal” and provide typical services. Closures delay special education referrals, evaluations, and annual reviews, isolate already fragile students, interfere with accommodations and modifications, and prevent some students from receiving any instruction, at all.
IEPs written today, addressing our present extraordinary circumstances, will have long-lasting consequences. IEPs are expected to provide educational certainty for students whose needs require "more,” especially special education and related services. In a time of great uncertainty, amidst an unanticipated and extraordinary public health crisis, how do schools honor both legal expectations and best practices, and craft and consistently meaningfully implement IEPs? How can we effectively, and compliantly, focus on real needs and not just react to our current crisis, and refer, evaluate, and develop legally-defensible, data-rich, and needs-driven IEPs?
In this fast-paced, entertaining, and engaging workshop, delivered by nationally-recognized lecturer, litigator, and law professor, John Comegno, Esq., John will examine key legal and policy considerations and lessons already learned. You can immediately apply these strategies to support students and staff and smartly craft and implement IEPs.
