Misc. Information:
While the first requirement of due process is notification, your handbook is more than a listing of rules and regulations. When any item is distributed to your school community, it should be of the highest quality and should be a reflection of the culture and climate of your school. OASSA staff and legal firm (Bricker and Eckler) will focus on the content and language that will make your handbook a useful tool for promoting your programs and managing your building. Any staff member who is responsible for developing the school handbook or enforcing the code of conduct will benefit from attending this conference. Included will be required language resulting from recent legislation, court decisions, and changes in the Ohio Revised Code (O.R.C.). Sample handbooks will be available for audience perusal. Registrants are asked to bring a sample copy of their handbooks to share with others.
