Political Speech and Campaigning on Campus (Webinar)
Feb 18 @ 7:00 am – 9:00 pm


Registration opens Friday, December 6.

This webinar will address a variety of issues involving political speech and related activities in the schools. Do students have a right to express their political opinions on their clothing, to distribute political literature, or to comment on their political beliefs at school? Do employees have a right to engage in political speech while on the job, especially in the classroom? When may school facilities be used by outside groups for election or political purposes? The webinar will also address a state law that forbids school boards from using public funds to endorse or oppose a referendum, election, or a particular candidate for elective office.

Presented by: Janine Murphy, Assistant Legal Counsel, NCSBA

Boundary Invasions and Sexual Grooming (Webinar)
Mar 24 @ 7:00 am – 9:00 pm

Registration opens Friday, December 6.

Most cases of sexual abuse of students by school employees are preceded by a form of “sexual grooming.” Sexual grooming often is only evident after the fact and can be quite subtle and similar to innocent behavior, which can make it difficult for school administrators to identify. On the other hand, no school employee wants his or her innocent attempts at establishing a sound and trusting relationship with students to be viewed as grooming for sexual misconduct. This webinar will discuss how to resolve this dilemma by ensuring employees and administrators understand the difference between appropriate and inappropriate boundary invasions and the importance of observing and enforcing professional boundaries.

Presented by: Kathy Boyd, Senior Staff Attorney, NCSBA
