Education Law Team

The Education Law team counsels the Santa Clara County Office of Education and certain local school districts on various legal issues to support local educational agencies in ensuring legal compliance, preserving resources, and promoting equitable treatment of students, staff, and families.  Education Law attorneys assist these local educational agencies in addressing a wide array of legal issues, including student rights and responsibilities, governance, charter school authorization, and policy projects.  Education law attorneys also represent local educational agencies in litigation related to these areas.  Our attorneys research and analyze many areas of law, conduct trainings, craft policies, guide agencies through student discipline proceedings, investigate Uniform Complaint Procedures complaints, respond to civil rights complaints, advise on board governance issues, analyze proposed data sharing and education record confidentiality, and assist local agencies in addressing significant and challenging issues.
