Navigating the Minefield of Separated/Divorced Parents in Admissions and After Enrollment

Numerous issues arise in the school environment relating to separated or divorced parents. Who should sign the enrollment agreement? Who has the right to make decisions? Can one parent require that the school not communicate with the other parent? What records and information must be made available to each? What are the school’s rights and obligations when the parents become disruptive to the school environment and overly demanding?

School Obligations Regarding Background Checks (including Early Childhood and Summer Camp Workers) and Obligations for Schools Receiving State Scholarship Funds
Register here

Schools have obligations under accreditation standards and state law to background check employees, volunteers, and summer camp workers. Different laws have different requirements. In addition, if the school receives any amount of state corporate tax or scholarship funding (McKay, Corporate Tax Scholarship, etc.), the school has additional layers of obligations, both for criminal background processes and relating to training, policies, termination, and separation agreements. We will discuss each of these issues to bring clarity to an area of law that has changed substantially over the last few years.
