Have You Taken a Look At The Pre-Conferences?

 

Since 2004, ASBA has been pleased to provide additional, optional programing to the main ASBA Law Conference.  We call these our Pre-Conferences and they have grown in content and popularity over the years.  What is unique about these sessions is that because of the longer time allotted to a single-subject, we are able to do a “deep-dive” into some of the most pressing educational/legal topics of the day.  This year’s sessions are no different.  A run-down of this year’s Pre-Conference offerings:

 

  • Pre-Conference One: Social Media, Schools and The Law:
    • A Primer on Today’s Social Media Landscape
    • Public Interaction With Board Members and Staff Over Social Media
    • Screen Time and Children: What Does the Research Say?
    • Open Meeting and Public Records Laws in the Digital Age
    • When Can You Search That Cell Phone?
    • Putting Out the Social Media Fire
    • Managing Student-to-Student Disruptions That Occur Because of Digital Interactions
    • The Digital Divide and the Challenge to Educational Equity
    • Free Speech, Public Employees and Social Media

 

  • Pre-Conference Two: Educational Equity and The Law
    • An Overview of the Laws That Require Equal Educational Opportunities for All Students
    • Poverty in Arizona: An Overview and Trends
    • Desegregation: Is It Still A Thing? Plus Other Funding Systems and Their Impact on Educational Equity
    • The Critical Importance of the 2020 Census to Education
    • Early Childhood Education: Is It The Key?
