Poyner Spruill Welcomes Education Law Practice Group

Board Leadership

Local boards of education face challenges and have opportunities unique to their individual size and resources. The Poyner Spruill Education Law Practice Group encompasses attorneys with decades of experience advising and representing local boards of education. Our team understands the, sometimes overwhelming, list of duties and responsibilities that fall on local boards of education.

Local boards of education have chosen our attorneys to assist with advice, training, and consultation on the general and specific duties of a local board of education, including compliance with the Open Meetings Law, Public Records Law, and closed session discussions, as well as a wide array of state and federal confidentiality laws.

The team has extensive experience dealing with constitutional law questions involving the separation of church and state, moments of silence, prayers, use-of-facilities issues, Establishment Clause issues, Free Exercise Clause issues, due process, and equal protection claims.

We are dedicated to teaching and training our client school boards and their administrators to avoid problems and practices that might result in liability. Our attorneys work closely with our clients to establish practical and useful training and education. We believe strongly in preventive practices and pragmatic training, and have extensive experience offering workshops and training sessions for school employees, administrators, and Board members in virtually every area of education law.
