• NJASA Legal Department Research Services - November 2016

    In March 2016, North Carolina’s governor signed a bill blocking cities from allowing transgender individuals from using the bathroom associated with their sexual identity.  This bill ignited nation-wide debate on the issue and raised awareness of the rights of transgendered individuals.  In response to this conversation, this Administrative Guide analyzes the current state of the legal rights of Transgender Students in New Jersey.

    In addition, the School News Briefs reviews three new cases including one case in which the Commissioner found, on remand, that tenured teachers who make racially derogatory statements at school may be dismissed

    The November 2016 Special Education Bulletin reviews three cases including one in which, after a parent’s request for an independent evaluation, the board failed to file for due process within 20 days, and the week off for spring break did not extend the district’s time to file.
