VT-HEC Presenting Legal Updates by Art Cernosia in 2014-15

Art Cernosia & VT-HEC

Nationally recognized education law expert, Art Cernosia, Esq. will offer his only two 2014-15 Vermont presentations working with the VT-HEC next year.  Art’s presentations are known for their comprehensive review of education-related legal issues and court decisions and his practical perspective on how they affect Vermont schools.  Art will be presenting the Special Education Law Update & Review on October 6, 2014 and his  general Legal Update & Review on November 10, 2014, both at the Capitol Plaza in Montpelier. 

This will be your only chance to see & hear Art in Vermont next year so hold these dates.  Rarely, will you be able to hear so much about where the legal winds are blowing and how they affect schools, Boards, leaders, teachers and students in Vermont and rarely, will you be able to hear such information from such a dynamic and knowledgeable presenter. We at the VT-HEC are very excited to be working with Art who has kept a special focus on what is happening in Vermont even as he spends time traveling the country to learn and present about the ever more complex legal world surrounding education today.
