Public Charter School and Education Law

Idaho public education law includes state and federal law governing the public educational process as well as state law for local governments.  This educational process involves employment of both certificated and non-certificated staff, student records, education curriculum,  special education, athletics and extracurricular participation,  protection and security, attendance, discipline,  transportation, and residency.

Chris is also one of the most-experienced attorneys in the specific field of charter school law. He has been representing individual charter schools and charter organizations for about twenty years and has been involved in drafting legislation that impacts charter schools. While charter schools have many of the same issues seen by traditional public schools, charters also have unique issues regarding facilities funding, the operation of non-profit organizations and other charter-specific issues.

Chris has also worked to represent private schools with their various legal issues.
