What to Do Till the Lawyer Comes. A Handbook of School Law for the Seattle Public Schools.
Little, Gary M.
This handbook is designed to give school administrators and teachers a basic understanding of law as it impacts on the public school of today. Therefore, the fundamental law in the areas of school liability, church-state relationship, community relations, student rights, teacher-school relations, and parent-school relations is set out in each section, often with clarifying examples. In addition, procedures or guidelines are laid out to help in dealing safely with situations with underlying legal implications. Whereas this handbook should be of assistance to administrators and teachers in dealing with their daily problems, it is not intended to replace but only to supplement the ongoing advice of legal counsel. As fact patterns are ever varying, as problems differ from school to school, and as the law is always changing, a school administrator will be wise to continue to seek the advice of legal counsel.
