Student Handbooks: Essential Updates for the New School Year
With spring break around the corner for most schools, it is a signal to administrators that it is time to focus on summer projects, including updating the student handbook for the 2023-2024 school year.
Join McLane Middleton’s Brian Garrett and Linda Johnson, as they provide guidance on how to tackle this project. They will focus on hot topics and other trending issues that we have seen in our practice over the past year as a guide for schools about which policies warrant attention. This program will examine policies and suggested language addressing student discipline, sexual conduct and consent, gender identity (documentation, dress code, and living arrangements for boarding schools), student records, the impact of artificial intelligence on academics, and harassment and cyber-misconduct, among others.
Brian and Linda will review a sample table of contents to help schools ensure that they are covering all the policies that generally apply to independent schools.
