This one-hour webinar will introduce participants to the practical implications for schools of parents’ legal rights. In addition to outlining key legislation related to parents’ rights in education, this course will consider the difference between guardianship, custody, and access. In reviewing relevant case law, this course will consider what schools need to know in order to comply with legislation on a day-to-day basis. This course is particularly suited to those in school management such as principals, deputy principals, and assistant principals; however, the content is also relevant to class teachers and support teachers.
