Maine Special Education Law Summer Institute

          Live Zoom          
Live Zoom
Date: 07 / 08 / 2024
Time: 1:00pm to 4:00pm
Presenter(s): Eric R. Herlan

We are taking our Institute virtual again for 2024 using Zoom, a cloud based video conferencing service. This program has been designed with busy educators in mind. Participants will cover materials that would traditionally be taught in a semester-long course. This will be accomplished through significant reading in advance from Eric Herlan’s Maine Special Education Law, as well as collected court and hearing officer rulings. Participants will also complete a written exercise in advance of the course, and a written project either during or after the completion of the course. Class members will be required to prepare a written brief on one of the cases, participate in virtual mock IEP meetings, and then finish the course with an interactive mock disciplinary exercise- virtual of course! Participants will come out of the course with a strong knowledge of all the important procedural and substantive requirements of Maine special education law, including the disciplinary issues that impact this field, Section 504, FERPA, and other key issues impacting the delivery of services to students with disabilities. A course in Special Education Law is required for new administrator certification in Maine. What better way to meet your requirements than to learn from the best and have fun doing it!
