Federal Law and Policy

With the passage of the No Child Left Behind Act a decade ago, and the more recent Every Student Succeeds Act, the role of the federal government has reached a higher level of importance and impact than ever before. Other federal laws, such as the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), and the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) provide an enormous amount of additional regulatory requirements. Tugboat professionals have years of experience drafting, interpreting, and focusing on compliance with federal requirements. We have also assisted clients successfully push for changes to federal policy and rules.
