Our firm knows the challenges that all schools, higher education institutions and governmental bodies are facing in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our attorneys are working diligently to create guidance documents, compile resources and review everchanging laws and policies for our clients. We are here to help you navigate these hurdles and make sound decisions for your team.
Because the legal landscape is changing daily, we are striving to provide the most current information and will be updating this page throughout the day as new information is released. We urge you to check back here regularly to ensure that you are accessing the most recent guidance. Since many of these topics are extremely fact-specific and may vary for your institution, we urge you to give us a call or email to discuss your questions and concerns. Our attorneys and staff are working around the clock and are ready to help.
Our attorneys are regularly creating “Curbside Pickup” orders which provide updates on new laws and guidance from state and federal authorities. Our KBS attorneys also provide guidance on practical matters such as distance learning, special education, personnel and governance.
Our attorneys and staff are staying on the cutting edge of information being rolled out by state and federal agencies and educational organizations related to COVID-19 issues. We have compiled the most up-to-date resources from a variety of reputable sources such as TEA, TASB, the U.S. Department of Labor, and others.
Each week, KBS attorneys write a Q&A-style blog post on a “hot topic” in school law that is placed in the Reference Desk portion of our website. Recently, all blog posts have been related to COVID-19 issues for schools. You can find a list of all COVID-19 related blog posts with summaries and links by clicking “Learn More” below.
In the coming weeks, our attorneys will be providing helpful webinars addressing a number of “hot topics” during the COVID-19 pandemic, with our first webinar scheduled for April 1st. Check here for information on our scheduled webinars and how to register.
