The articles in this series will share Virginia regulations that have been cited by lawyers who represent school divisions, by hearing officers, and by state education agencies, to buttress their arguments and/or decisions.
One goal of this series is to identify usage trends. Each article will be dedicated to one regulation. The articles will be routinely updated to include when, where, how, and who most recently cited the regulations.
