The WVSPA Fall 2020 Conference will be held virtually due to the pandemic. As part of the conference lineup, several webinars have been planned! The first webinar will be held on October 16, 2020 from 1:00-4:00 p.m.! For this webinar, WVSPA is pleased to host John B. Comegno, II, Attorney at Law for an ethics presentation titled "The Legal and Ethical Implications of HIPAA and FERPA". School psychologists daily face novel questions regarding FERPA and HIPAA’s application to education records and student confidentiality. Is there a difference between FERPA and HIPAA in school? Is all information collected during evaluations and IEP implementation protected from disclosure by federal law? Do these laws apply equally? How does dual-licensure affect application? Remote service delivery and data collection during the COVID-19 school closures raised new questions – are there additional consent requirements? How do school psychologists stay safe during synchronous and asynchronous remote instruction and service delivery? This informative and entertaining session, delivered by nationally-known attorney and speaker John Comegno, Esq., will answer these questions and more.
Participants will earn 3 CE hours for this presentation! THIS SESSION COUNTS FOR ETHICS.
PLEASE NOTE: YOU MUST REGISTER BY OCTOBER 9TH!
