Legal Issues

Legal IssuesUnderstanding how to develop procedures and paperwork documentation that adheres to current federal and state law related to behavior can be daunting, especially in relation to special education law. As laws change, the PENT Director will post updates in this website section. The following documents and links have been found helpful by PENT members as they train educators on legal issues related to behavior. These documents refer in particular to IDEA Reauthorization 2004 as well as current California law. When IDEA is reauthorized again, these documents will be aligned to the new law.
