• NJASA Legal Department Research Services - January 2021


    Rights guaranteed to transgender students continues to be a rapidly evolving area of law. The January 2021 Administrative Guide will examine recent developments affecting transgender students under New Jersey and federal laws, including Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution.


    In addition, the School News Briefs discusses two new cases including one case in which a board member who was also president of the teachers’ union in another school district violated the School Ethics Act by failing to disclose compensation received from the union on his disclosure statement.


    The Special Education Bulletin reviews one case in which a board was ordered to provide compensatory education to a high school graduate through remedial coursework and the reimbursement of college financial aid.
