Technology Pool Counsel – Our EdTech Pool Counsel provides members with a vast array of resources and legal opinions on new technologies and legal issues as quickly as they emerge. This service is being offered at no cost to CIU 10 LEAs for the 2020/21 school year.
Rather than each school entity or intermediate unit (IU) re-inventing the wheel through new policies and procedures for each new tech trend, the considerable background of Sweet Stevens with these evolving issues allows the pool to provide timely advice on the trend and guide how to successfully navigate the legal issues involved. A model acceptable use policy, mobile device policies, and electronic records management procedures are updated based upon changes in law and technology and quickly distributed to clients. Ultimately, their experience in the field and the resources of the Pool Counsel save precious monetary resources for school entities and IUs by preventing costly litigation and legal missteps.
Sample Issues Include:
– Teacher and student use of social media, both in and out of school
– Mobile device use in schools
