COVID-19: Legal Guidance for K-12 Schools

Practical Guidance from Education Attorneys on Promoting Safety and Avoiding Liability

Public and private K-12 schools around the United States are struggling to address the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19), as well as the panic surrounding it. These schools, and their leaders, are being called on to make quick decisions that greatly impact staff, students, and communities. Having a well thought-out plan of action is the best protection against liability from these decisions.

Our education law attorneys held a one-hour webinar focusing on practical guidance for K-12 schools to address coronavirus, including:

  • How to address employee absenteeism and leave policies
  • Ensuring continuity of services for disabled students
  • Guidance to mitigate against coronavirus exposure and spread
  • Operational considerations in the event of school closures
