Behavior Intervention in School: Changes in California Law

Please Join the Parent Training & Information Center at DREDF for a special training opportunity Behavior Intervention in School: Changes in California Law Presented by: Maggie Roberts, Attorney Disability Rights California In July 2013, the California Legislature struck down most of the Hughes Bill, a set of laws and regulations requiring school districts to take specific steps to address the needs of special education students with behavior problems. What has NOT changed is that school districts MUST provide appropriate behavior related services and supports, including detailed functional behavioral assessment and positive behavioral intervention plans whenever behavior interferes with that student or another student’s learning. This free training reviews what the legal requirements are under federal and state law, and how to effectively advocate for students who need behavior intervention and support in order to benefit from their education program. Date: Monday, October 28, 2013 Time: 6:30 - 8:30 Where: The Ed Roberts Campus (at the Ashby BART Station) 3075 Adeline Street, Berkeley, CA Bernard Osher Education Center (First Floor) RSVP: Registration is required.
