Free Speech in Our Schools: What are the Rules for Teachers, Principals and Others?
Public employees generally have a right of free speech on matters of public concern as long as their speech is not disruptive of the operation of their employer. Moreover, when teachers and others engage in speech as part of their job duties, their speech may be regulated without regard to First Amendment rights. But school administrators understandably have many questions, such as how to define a “public concern” and what would constitute “disruption” that strips away First Amendment protections? With so many employees working from home and social media being such a dominant force these days, it is also hard to know what speech is personal and what speech is professional.

Attorneys Tom Mooney and Natalia Sieira Millan of Shipman & Goodwin will sort out the rules on free speech protections as they apply to public employees, including personal use of social media and other online speech.

This workshop is FREE for CAS member schools. The registration fee for non-member schools is $29 per person. If you aren’t sure if your school is a CAS member, please email Cheryl Novicelli at cnovicelli@casciac.org.
