Training Overview

What legal liability do you have for upcoming special events? Discover the current laws and situations you must consider.

As COVID-19 case rates skyrocket and Omicron sweeps the country, many schools are reevaluating their special event policies and procedures. The primary purpose of public schools is to educate children, but your school district plays a much broader role in your community. From dances to performances to ceremonies, K-12 schools are the venues for all sorts of special events.

These activities pose significant legal challenges to boards, administrators, and teachers even without a pandemic. You need to identify the potential risks and meet them effectively to protect your district’s reputation and financial well-being.
