Extracurricular Activities: Legal Issues and Areas of Liability

Too few schools realize how many legal issues are involved with extracurriculars. As schools become engaged in these programs, it is imperative that school administrators, coaches, board members, and activities advisors are aware of the issues that have the highest potential for liability and that they have a roadmap for handling them as they come up. It can be daunting to keep up with recent changes and updates in the law, especially the increasing influx of case law related to the administration of extracurricular programs.

Please join Erin D. Gilsbach, Esq., as she addresses the key areas of legal liability and provides guidance for schools on minimizing such liability in a number of areas. For each extracurricular-related topic, she offers an overview of the legal issue as well as best-practice tips and tools to help schools ensure compliance with this vast array of applicable concepts. From staffing issues to the use of volunteers, confidentiality concerns to fundraising issues, student rights (including transgender student rights and the right of student athletes to “take a knee” during the National Anthem) to insurance coverage considerations, this session identifies and provides information to help schools protect themselves and their students. This session is essential for all school administrators, board members, and school personnel involved in the provision of extracurricular activities in schools.
