Topic is Current Legal Issues in Education

10/22/2013 

A SUNY Cortland conference for educational leaders on Tuesday, Oct. 29, will focus on some emerging legal issues in education today, including the Amended Dignity for All Students Act 2013 and social media rules for public schools.

Three attorneys will offer an interactive panel discussion — on topics that also include the Annual Professional Performance Review (APPR) appeals implications regarding teachers, search and seizure laws and the concept of “reasonable suspicion” — from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. in Brockway Hall, Jacobus Lounge.

The Francis J. Cheney Educational Leadership Breakfast Conference is geared for area school district and building administrators and educational administration students enrolled in SUNY Cortland’s Educational Leadership Department.

The panel will feature Scott Budelmann, who also serves as the assistant superintendent for administrative services with the Madison-Oneida Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES), Joseph J. Bufano and Donald E. Budmen.

Participant registration is required to attend the conference. To register for the event, which includes breakfast, or to receive more information, contact the Educational Leadership Department by calling 607-753-2444 or by emailing janice.eaton@cortland.edu.

Kevin Mack, who chairs the Educational Leadership Department, works with an 11-member advisory board composed of regional school administrators to organize the Francis J. Cheney leadership conferences. He views these conferences as an opportunity for school leaders to meet and discuss current educational issues.

The Cheney Conference, held three times annually at SUNY Cortland, is sponsored by Louise M. Conley, Ph.D., the Cortland College Foundation and the Campus Artist and Lecture Series. The conference marks its fifth year as an annual event.

Named after Francis J. Cheney, who served as Cortland Normal School principal from 1891 until his death in 1912, the educational conference was created and funded by Cheney’s granddaughter, Conley, of Princeton, N.J. Conley chairs the Cortland College Foundation Board of Directors.

The conference’s mission is to create a learning community for educational leaders that enhances and supports the success of all students through ongoing professional development, refinement of leadership skills and networking.
