- 12:00 AM - 1:01 AM

- Continuing Legal Education Program (CLE)
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact the delivery of educational services to New Jersey students, there is a heightened need to understand the educational rights of students with disabilities and the impact of remote, hybrid, or in-person learning options on the implementation of Individualized Education Programs (IEPs).
This training will focus on distance learning plans and their development and implementation during the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, presenters will discuss how to effectively advocate for students with disabilities who do not have access to internet connectivity or lack appropriate technology to participate in remote or online home instruction.
While providing a very brief overview of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and the remedies available for violations of IDEA, the training is intended for those who know what an IEP is and have a basic knowledge of special education law.
