Students smile during an activity at the Nathaniel Bowditch K-8 School in Salem, Mass.

It’s nearly that time of year, so we thought we would highlight some of our pages that relate to schools and education.  We get questions about access to student records in divorce, CORI checks for people who work with children, internet bullying, and rights of students with special needs.

To start we have the primary page on Education Law, with links to statutes and government info including CORI checks, homeless students and more.

Related pages include Bullying and Cyberbullying, MCAS and Education Reform, Special Education, Student Dress Codes and Freedom of Expression,  Student Discipline, and Student Records.

(One final link might come in handy as you get your kids ready to go back to school : Shopping and Returns.)
