Pennsylvania School Law Handbook. A Handbook of Information on Pennsylvania Law and Legal Opinions Relating to Education.
Gaffney, Matthew W.
This book is a general guide to Pennsylvania school law designed for use by school board members, school administrators, school attorneys, and interested laymen. It is organized in 17 chapters that focus in turn on different areas of school law, including school board members and school district officers, superintendents, teachers, pupils, intermediate units and area vocational technical schools, assessment and collection of school taxes, school buildings and facilities, insurance, school curricula, state aid, federal aid, transportation, local school finances, nonteaching school employees, and the Pennsylvania Public Employee Relations Act. Within each chapter, information is presented in simple question-answer format, and each answer cites the appropriate section of Pennsylvania state law that applies. The book also includes an organizational chart of the Pennsylvania court system, a glossary of significant terms, and a subject index. (JG)
