Elizabeth Troutman Named Chair of North Carolina Council of School Attorneys
Brooks Pierce attorney Elizabeth Troutman has been named chair of the North Carolina Council of School Attorneys (NCCOSA).
NCCOSA was formed to support school board attorneys in their efforts to advise and represent local boards of education. The council offers school board attorneys access to a wealth of information on the dynamic world of school law in the form of conferences, publications and advice from fellow attorneys.
Troutman advises public school boards of education, private educational institutions and colleges and universities on a wide range of education issues and advocates for educational institutions in administrative proceedings, state and federal courts and before local, state, and federal regulatory agencies. Her experience includes developing policies and procedures for schools, handling investigations by the Office of Civil Rights, conducting board of education hearings, managing and advising on student discipline and employment matters, advising on federal and state legislative strategies, addressing a myriad of compliance-related issues and defending educational institutions in state and federal courts.
