Sweet, Stevens, Katz & WIlliams LLP is now offering a pool-counsel for Technology in Education. Building on their successful pool counsel program for special education, this service is designed to pool the collective resources of member Districts and Intermediate Units to provide legal support in the complicated and constantly-changing legal landscape that surrounds education technology. The technology pool provides pro-active strategies, training, and policies designed to prevent the digital-age problems that can lead to the liability.
Pool-Counsel Membership Includes:
E-mail answers to education technology and related questions in non-adversarial matters, with answers distributed to all pool members, when appropriate so all are informed of the issues and answers.
Development of model policies, guidelines, and forms concerning technology-related issues, such as use of mobile devices, acceptable use of school-owned technology, computer leases, and cyberbullying.
Face-to-face consultations regarding education technology in your district or IU.
On-site trainings and in-services for administrators, teachers and staff.
