At the start of every school-year, Pullman & Comley’s School Law section attorneys publish a summary of new Connecticut legislation impacting Connecticut schools and public-sector employers. Our 2014 legislative summary, which we released in August is available here for your convenience. While in comparison to recent years 2014 was relatively modest in terms of education-law changes (2014 is an election year after all), there were still a number of significant changes that you and your district should be aware of. New legislation delaying mandatory implementation of uniform school calendars, changes to the expulsion statute and newly required student-concussion protocols top the list.
Should you have any questions concerning the impact 2014 legislation may have on your district please contact one of our school law attorneys.
