Handbook: Emergency Legal Procedures. [Third Edition].
Apperson, Ron; Waxman, Everett
This is the latest edition of a handbook designed to assist school administrators in preventing and dealing with school disruptions and certain related legal matters. Because the handbook was prepared specifically for use by administrators in the Los Angeles Unified School District, it is based on laws and regulations that may not apply elsewhere. However, many of the administrative actions and preventative measures it recommends may be of value to school administrators in other states and cities as well. Section 1 lists various types of disruptive activity, suggests steps to minimize the impact of such disturbances, and cites the administrative and legal authority supporting such steps. Section 2 lists various preventative measures that have been successful in one or more school districts. Section 3 discusses from a legal standpoint the substance and rationale for the recommended responses to various disturbances. Section 4 presents the text of the laws, regulations, and policies cited throughout the handbook. Section 5 provides useful information about relevant legal requirements and administrative procedures. Section 6 contains a glossary of terms, abbreviations, and references used throughout the handbook. (JG)
