Dances, Performances, Ceremonies and Other Special Events: A Legal Guide for K-12 Public Schools
Proms, musicals, art shows, awards ceremonies… As spring approaches, K-12 schools across the nation are gearing up for an influx of special events. In this session, nationally-recognized school law attorney Erin D. Gilsbach will identify the key legal issues and statutory and regulatory obligations that public schools need to consider when planning these events. Throughout the planning process, a host of legal questions arise: What types of security measures should be put into place? Are special considerations necessary when inviting members of the public? What are the school’s responsibilities regarding equal access at special events? What measures should be taken prior to the event in order to protect the school from liability? This session will address these issues and many more.
This session is designed to provide practical information for schools planning special events. During this webinar, Attorney Gilsbach will discuss the legal aspects of such topics as safety and security measures, non-discriminatory practices, and public access. She will also identify best practices regarding advance planning and protocols for school events and address some key legal differences regarding events that are limited to attendance by students, events that will be attended by students and families, and events that are open to the public.
Based upon the information provided this session, participants will be able to identify:
- What laws apply to school events that are open to the public;
