Do you know a school-aged child that struggles with learning? In this webinar given by the San Diego Volunteer Lawyer Program, attorney Celia Rutherford will provide basic information about Caliofornia education law.

She will explain the process to get an assessment for a child, the difference between an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) and a 504 Plan, and the rules about suspensions and expulsion of students. This webinar will educate individuals on how to best advocate for students, including suggestions for advocacy during remote learning due to COVID-19. The webinar will also highlight the services provided by the San Diego Volunteer Lawyer Program’s Education Law Project.
