Dan Moulis Barrington School District

Education Law

Our school district works regularly with Wadleigh, Starr, & Peters. Our school district often seeks out the advice and opinions of the lawyers with whom we work (i.e., Dean Eggert, Alison Minutelli, and Kathleen Peahl) regarding policy and legal issues that arise. We have always been able to count on their up-to-date knowledge of relevant state and federal regulations, as well as their knowledge of case law (including the most recent court decisions). In addition to responding to issues that arise (often unexpectedly), the Wadleigh, Starr, & Peters lawyers who work with public school districts publish a monthly newsletter titled “In Brief.” Articles featured in the newsletter provide incredibly helpful information about legal issues that school districts may face--gender identity and transgender protection, decision of the United States Supreme Court in Endrew F., recent amendments to the State Department of Education’s special education regulations, an amendment to the Right-to-Know Law, etc. Dean Eggert and Alison Minutelli have also made available on the firm’s website a number of publications that provide detailed information on a number of relevant education topics—IDEA, Section 504, Bullying, and Seclusion/Restraint to name just a few. In closing, I also want to mention that our school district has worked closely with Dean Eggert to develop case study challenges for our district- and school-level administrators. Administrators participate in case study challenge cycles during which they need to analyze unique case studies for the embedded legal, ethical, and policy issues with an overarching goal of meeting the following core competency: When solving complex problems, makes effective and creative decisions that align with the Mission, Vision, and Core Beliefs of the School District.
