School Handbooks: Some Legal Considerations.
Shaughnessy, Mary Angela
Questions arise as to what should be placed in handbooks for students and parents, for teachers, and for school board members. These questions are addressed within the framework of how state and federal laws and regulations affect Catholic (private) schools. The first chapter provides an introduction to the laws affecting the administration of Catholic schools. The following three chapters, which deal respectively with handbooks for faculty, parents/students, and members of boards of education, contain lists of items that should be in such handbooks, discuss the legal implications of what is said about each item, and provide suggestions on wording that might be used. A glossary of terms, a 38-item bibliography, and an index conclude the book. (SI)
