BUCKLE YOUR SEATBELT 2017 NEW HAMPSHIRE RULES AND RECENT COURT DECISIONS ALTER THE WORLD OF SPECIAL EDUCATION




March 3, 2020


Drummond Woodsum attorneys Erin Feltes and Gerald Zelin will conduct a full-day conference for the NH Association of Special Education Administrators on the developments in special education law.  

Have you noticed? Nothing stays the same in special education! Look at this lineup of developments:

  • In March 2017 the New Hampshire Board of Education amended the state’s special education rules. The new rules include LOTS of changes, many of which will alter the way that schools practice special education
  • A new First Circuit ruling addresses the interplay between the school’s written prior notice, IEPs, and questions about methodology. This decision impacts documentation of every IEP meeting you hold
  • Not enough? You all know this – The U.S. Supreme Court recently issued its first ruling since 1982 on how extensive the school duty is to provide a FAPE. This decision, in the Endrew F. case, may be the most important special education ruling by the Supreme Court in decades.

New Rules! FAPE! IEPs and WPNs! Drummond Woodsum’s special education team will review each and every one of these new developments, and what they all mean for school districts in New Hampshire.
