Our partner Heather Brickman is the current Chair of the ICSA, and she welcomes school attorneys from across our state to speak at the Conference, including HLERK alumnus Sara Boucek who opens the Conference by providing a legislative update.

In the afternoon, Cindi DeCola addresses the Conference on Advising Clients Through Sexual Harassment Investigations, while Rob Swain  addresses the Conference on The Art of Advising through a SPED Co-op Withdrawal, drawing on his experiences representing SEDOL in Mundelein High School’s petition for withdrawal from SEDOL, which was denied by the Lake County Regional Board of School Trustees.

HLERK is privileged to have this opportunity to train school attorneys from other law firms, as well as in-house district counsel, as part of our goal of improving legal services for all Illinois school districts.


The next meeting of the Executive Board is scheduled for December 5, 2018, in Springfield. Michelle Todd and Bennett will be in attendance, and their Legal Update will be available at www.iaase.org.

IAASE and its President Dr. Kevin Rubenstein and President-Elect Jami Hodge encourage all members to attend the Executive Board meeting where they can learn the latest developments affecting them and their school districts (as well as enjoying the company of their fellow special education administrators). In addition, registration is now open for the IAASE Winter Conference next February in Springfield at the Crowne Plaza.
