INFORMATION
Training Overview

Supreme Court decision brings new special education considerations. Discover how your school must adapt.

When the United States Supreme Court decided Perez v. Sturgis Public Schools, they determined that a student with a disability does not need to exhaust the administrative due process procedures of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) before seeking compensatory damages under the Americans with Disability Act or other federal discrimination laws.

This decision has a significant impact on schools for special education matters. You must be aware of its implications to update your procedures and reduce your legal risk.
