A common challenge for Christian Schools is keeping up with the laws that impact a school's operations, protect a school from liability, preserve the school’s resources, and defend a school's religious liberties. While we live in a litigious society, school leaders can help their organizations avoid unnecessary disputes and litigation through sound policies and a basic understanding of relevant federal and state laws. Provided by ACSI’s Legal & Legislative Issues Department, this workshop is designed to help you as a Christian school leader gain a better understanding of laws that impact your school and help you guide your organization to better policies, procedures, and practices.
