About the webinar: Tracking court decisions on various special education issues is not easy. For example, what’s been the impact on other courts, if any, of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Endrew F.? Are courts starting to allow parents, like school districts, to unilaterally change a student’s stay put to a "comparable” placement and, if so, what are the potential implications? When are electronic records “maintained” so as to be deemed “educational records” under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and has technology gotten ahead of FERPA?In this webinar, Deusdedi Merced discussed how courts have addressed these and other issues with an eye towards what trends, if any, appear to be developing and their implications for the field.
