This presentation will review San Francisco Unified School District’s partnership with the Bar Association of San Francisco, and give an overview of the district’s well-established ADR program. While Covid-19 initially seemed to be a barrier to access for ADR, it has turned out to be an opportunity to improve opportunities for ADR resolutions through various strategies. Join us to learn more about our district’s program and how it’s being adapted for Covid. The session will include opportunities to review case studies and brainstorm solutions in small groups.
