Webinar: Investigations Involving Students

Can students be questioned by school officials without parental notification and consent? What supportive services should be provided for students who have been questioned at school for committing misconduct? What is the role of school resource officers (SRO) in schools? These are some examples of questions we are fielding in light of the recent tragic news reports concerning a 16-year-old student who attended Naperville North High School.

In this Franczek webinar, the presenters, including Amy Dickerson and Jennifer Smith, discuss the current state of Illinois law pertaining to student conduct investigations in public schools. Highlights in this presentation include best practices for collaborating with the police, interviewing students, and involving parents when addressing student conduct.
