Bullying: The Legal View and Cost

CSBA Annual Education Conference and Trade Show

Best Best & Krieger LLP Partner Cathy Holmes will present "Bullying: The Legal View and Cost" at the 2017 California School Boards Association's Annual Education Conference and Trade Show. Bullying is nothing new. Schools have always had a responsibility to investigate incidents of harassment and intimidation based on disability, gender, race, ethnicity and other factors. Schools have also always been authorized to discipline students who bully, harass and intimidate. But the stakes are higher than ever before, as litigation to hold school districts responsible for bullying-related impacts on students is becoming significantly more prevalent. This presentation will focus on current federal and state laws, and how such laws are being interpreted by courts and enforcement agencies. Practical suggestions will also be discussed for compliance and ensuring that schools continue to provide safe learning environments for all students.
