Attorney Contacts - how to handle:
If/when you are approached by an attorney regarding any child, student, teacher, paraprofessional, parent, etc. you are to indicate that you cannot have a conversation until speaking with your supervisor. Inform the sector coordinator immediately, before speaking with the attorney, whether or not there is a release. When you contact your coordinator be prepared to share specifics about the request and the coordinator will contact Beth Hansen (our attorney) regarding how to proceed.
If an attorney arrives at an IEP meeting unannounced, the IEP meeting should be rescheduled so that our attorney can also be present. You can say to the attorney "I have representation and have been advised to not participate without her present". This information has been shared with our LEA administrators last spring and they are also prepared to reschedule IEP meetings. Please call your coordinator if you have any questions at that moment.
