The Texas School Administrators’ Legal Digest is committed to keeping educators informed about the legal issues that impact day-to-day school administration. In 2017, the Texas Legislature met and made a host of changes to the laws that shape the way educators handle school discipline, improper relationships between educators and students, bullying and cyberbullying, special education, and personnel matters. Every day presents a new challenge, and potential legal issues on our campuses. Education laws are often lengthy and complex. Given this complexity, the Legal Digest has developed a number of helpful, easy-to-read guides, charts, and handbooks to provide educators the tools they need to understand Texas and federal school laws. Each of our guides, charts, and handbooks have been updated to reflect the latest changes made during the 2017 Texas legislative session. We are confident that these tools will help school administrators make legally-defensible decisions at the school level that, not only comply with the law, but preserve order and public trust in our schools.
We have converted 2 more paper charts to laminated guides to make these handy reference items longer-lasting and easier to access.
