Advisory Board

A national advisory board assists in the planning and development of Academy trainings. The board consists of experienced administrative law judges, hearing officers and attorneys representing both education agencies and parents.

The Board has been established to assure that the Academy’s activities reflect the needs of those it serves. The Advisory Board suggests topics for annual trainings, recommends potential speakers and reviews solicited and unsolicited presentations. The present advisory board consists of:

  • Julian Mann, III, ALJ (North Carolina)
  • Jeffrey Masin, ALJ (New Jersey)
  • John B. Gatto, ALJ (Georgia)

Members of the Advisory Board are changed periodically to reflect changes in employment and assure a wide representation of viewpoints.
