November 02, 2015

The community is invited to participate in an informational session featuring speaker, Karen Haase from KSB School Law on November 12th, 2015.  Karen will speak to 9th-12th graders at 10 AM and to 6th-8th graders at 11 AM.  The public is invited to attend either session.  Burwell Public Schools will also have a 10 AM start on November 12th for a staff in-service.  Karen is an animated and entertaining speaker that focuses on real life issues facing schools, students and teachers today.    

Karen Haase is a principal in the law firm of KSB School Law, where she focuses her practice exclusively on representing public school districts and related entities.  She holds degrees from Hastings College, Kansas State University and the University Of Nebraska College Of Law.  Prior to attending law school, Karen taught at both the high school and post-secondary level. Karen has been married to her high school sweetheart for 25 years and has two teen-aged children.

Karen has been practicing school law for 18 years. If there is a legal problem facing a school, Karen has probably dealt with it at least once. Student discipline, teacher improvement and remediation, and board relations with administrators and communities including technology issues are all fodder for the stories she shares in her presentations and in life.

Karen has extensive experience in, comprehensive knowledge of and heartfelt devotion to special education law. She has tried half of the special education due process cases in Nebraska over the past fifteen years and is a national speaker on special education. She has presented at LRP’s national conferences, including their National Institute, their Special Education Directors Summit and others.
