IASA is joining with HLERK on January 9 to hold two programs on the newly-issued ISBE regulations on time out and physical restraint, as well as SB 460, impacting special education practices. You can register for one of the two IDENTICAL sessions (morning or afternoon) HERE. Space is very limited at both sessions, so please register ASAP. We look forward to seeing you there.

HLERK is also  proud to serve as the only school law firm co-sponsor of IASA’s newly-announced Global Service Project. The project will involve a superintendent and board member from 10 to 11 school districts across our state traveling to the Dominican Republic to repair and restore schools. HLERK is proud to co-sponsor this project of global good for children.

In addition, registration is now open for the IAASE Winter Conference in Springfield in February 2020. Visit www.iaase.org for information and registration. HLERK, of course, will be actively involved in the Winter Conference.
