Colorado Education Law Attorneys

What is Education Law?

Education is important in a child’s life and parents want the best for their children. A child’s experience at school influences their future. Colorado education attorneys are here to guide families through the complex educational system in the best interests of their children. Students preschool through college in regular education, special education, activities and athletics will find advocates to defend and support them. This includes incarcerated youth and adults through the age of 21 with disabilities in correctional education.

We help students and their parents who are involved in the following:

  • Special Needs Accommodations
  • Expulsions
  • Suspensions
  • Discrimination
  • Bullying
  • Home Schooling
  • Learning Disabilities
  • Individual Education Plan (IEP)
  • Individual Family Service Plans (IFSP’s)
  • Adequate Yearly Progress

We also take on cases for the following education-related acts:

  • Individuals With Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)
  • Discrimination Claims under Title IX; Education Amendments of 1972
  • Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Section 504
  • Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA)
  • Free And Appropriate Public Education (FAPE)
  • No Child Left Behind (NCLB)
  • Americans With Disabilities Act Of 1990, Title II
  • Family Educational Rights And Privacy Act (FERPA)
  • The Colorado High School Activities Association, Article 5

Sometimes it only takes a letter to address an issue. Sometimes it only takes a “sit down and talk” to help get answers and find a solution. At Cantafio & Song PLLC, we advocate for the rights of students and their parents, and we are dedicated to resolving education-related disputes. From dealing with discrimination in schools to ensuring that special needs students have access to their necessary accommodations, our team of lawyers are here to represent you and protect your legal rights.

Concerned About Education During COVID- 19?

Are you a concerned parent of a school-age child with special needs that believes the school district may be violating your child’s civil rights due to the closure of schools during the COVID-19 epidemic? Did you know the school district must provide accessible distance learning options to the child during this unprecedented time so long as the school continues to offer education services?

With the Governor’s Executive Order prohibiting in-person instruction in Colorado’s primary and secondary schools through the end of the 2019-2020 school year, many parents and students alike are left wondering what the Summer and Fall semesters look like for Colorado students.

As of this writing, Denver Public Schools, Jeffco Public schools, and fourteen metro area Districts in conjunction with their respective county health officials have announced the continuation of remote learning. Each districts’ websites contain important information for parents and students to bring clarity and reduce the uncertainty during these challenging times.

For summer programming, Denver Public Schools has announced summer classes will also be held remotely and all summer camps are canceled. Please check with your local school district for information on the status of summer programming in your area. The Colorado Department of Education’s website contains links to all Colorado schools and districts. The link is provided here, for your review.

Additionally, The Colorado Department of Education provides a wealth of information and resources pertaining to guidance for parents here. Due to the ongoing nature of the epidemic and its impact on schools, the future is unknown at this time. Please continue to check back as we work to update the information and resources available
