P&As are addressing a new rash of school removals of students with disabilities, due in part to abuse of the Threat Assessment processes put in place after the school shooting in Parkland, Florida. Other disability-related concerns that stem from school hardening techniques include physical barriers that are not accessible, social media monitoring, registries, and anonymous tipping. Join this session to learn what P&As are doing and can do to fight back.
