• NJASA Legal Department Research Services - January 2017

    School administrators have an obligation to prevent students from being sexually abused by both current and former employees. Part one of this Administrative Guide discussed the impact of improper sexual relationships on students and the steps chief school administrators should take when presented with information about improper conduct by a staff member. Part two concludes the series by discussing the steps to be taken to prevent harm to other children by former employees who have been accused of inappropriate contact with students.

    In addition, School News Briefs reviews three new cases including one case in which the Commissioner held that the standard to prove inefficiency for increment withholding purposes is not the same standard as that for inefficiency tenure charges.

    The January 2017 Special Education Bulletin, also reviews three cases including one in which a school district was ordered to reimburse the parents for the placement of a disabled child at an unaccredited, sectarian school because no other placement could provide a FAPE.
