Clark Hill Attorney Joseph B. Urban to Present at the Michigan School Business Officials Annual Conference – April 25
GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. –
Joe Urban will present on Thursday, April 25 at the Michigan School Business Officials Annual Conference on “What Every K-12 Should Know about Public School Academies/Charter Schools”. Charter schools are gaining prominence as a choice for parents and also as one of the four possible reform models under “Race to the Top.” Significant federal grant money is available to project teams (including members of the K-12 community) seeking to develop charter schools. In this seminar, geared toward senior school administration, Urban will familiarize participants with the tools they need to evaluate the advantages of becoming an authorizing body in pursuit of enhanced opportunities for children and additional revenue. Urban will also outline the challenges school districts may face in this area, as well as describe the help that project team members will find along the way.
Urban is a member in Clark Hill’s Birmingham office, where he concentrates his practice in the areas of municipal finance, education law, and real estate law.
Urban routinely represents school employers in the areas of collective bargaining, grievances and arbitration, unfair labor practices, wrongful discharge and the day-to-day matters arising in personnel administration. With respect to education law, Urban regularly counsels school districts and public school academies in the operational issues involved in administering educational organizations, including compliance with the Revised School Code, the Open Meetings Act, the Freedom of Information Act, and other laws governing public bodies.
