Please reach out to Janice Gregerson or Ashley Sykes directly if you have additional questions.

We all agree that it feels as if everything has changed. And with this change, our practice and protocols of recruiting, retaining, and connecting with prospective families and students have been significantly altered. What are the legal implications and methods in this era of COVID-19? How have they changed how we operate - as an office of Admission and as a place of learning? This session highlights the must-have operational and strategic legal perspectives in this time of COVID-19 and as well identifies the must-haves as we prepare for whatever is next. This session will include a discussion of how to structure Enrollment Contracts and Parent Handbooks in the wake of COVID-19.
