Private Schools

Representation of Special Education and Typical Private Schools

Barger & Gaines represents private schools in a variety of matters, including contract negotiations, student matters, employment matters and compliance with Federal, State and local laws.

In addition to the issues impacting typical private schools, Barger & Gaines works with special education schools and service providers on issues arising under the IDEA and Section 504 and represents schools and providers in disputes with public school districts.  The firm assists with Federal and State investigations and offers training to administrative teams and staff members to review legal obligations and the often-changing landscape of special education law.

It is important for private schools to be aware of their legal obligations to students and the parameters of their managerial discretion in running their programs.
