Starting in 1994, the New York State Bar Association joined the New York State School Boards Association as co-publisher ofSchool Law, originally written by Professor William J. Hageny. School Law has been widely recognized for many years as an excellent related reference for board members, administrators and attorneys.
This new edition has been fully revised and expanded. In addition to covering all of the recent legislative changes, updates include bullying, teacher and principal evaluations, a tax levy cap and the federal school accountability flexibility waiver. The price includes free on-line access to updated statutes.
The information in this handbook, which is primarily presented in an easy-to-use question-and-answer format, has been culled from a variety of sources, including New York State statutory and case law, the Rules of the Board of Regents, decisions and regulations of the Commissioner of Education and the opinions of the State Comptroller. Supplementing the review provided by the New York State School Boards Association and the New York State Bar Association-s review committee, staff members at several state agencies provided additional input.
This book is an invaluable text of first reference, whether you represent a student, teacher, administrator or a school board.
