Substitute teachers, teachers’ aides and individuals studying education may find Nevada School Law (EDU 210) is an indispensable course.
Western Nevada College is offering Nevada School Law, which is designed to acquaint teachers with the legal aspects of the school setting, particularly in Nevada. This course identifies major legal issues in education and illustrates the implications of laws/mandates in the schools. Guidelines for teachers will provide information on situations that may lead to litigation. Issues include teacher rights/responsibilities, student rights, teacher liability, rights to privacy, accommodations for religious practices and students with special needs.
Diana Lovendino, UNR College of Education Academic Advisor for transfer students, said, “EDU 210 is still a requirement for the Elementary program (students desiring to teach K-6). It is also an option for others.”
“That would include students desiring to teach secondary, as well as subs, aides and anyone working in the schools,” said Michelle Rousselle, who teaches Nevada School Law at WNC this fall.
