CLE on Student Tribunal Hearing Training
What: Our Young Professionals Council and Alston & Bird are hosting a training for attorneys who represent students facing public school disciplinary hearings. Under Georgia law, K-12 public school students faced with proposed out of school suspension of more than ten days or with expulsion, are entitled to dispute the proposed disciplinary action at an administrative hearing often referred to as a 'tribunal.' Because of the impact a long term suspension or expulsion may have on a student's academic success and on the flow to the “school to prison pipeline,” it is important that the tribunal process provide meaningful due process to a student. Public school students in foster care sometimes face a disciplinary hearing alone. Attorneys completing the training may opt to enter a pool of trained volunteers to provide tribunal representation to a child in foster care.
