Charles W. “Chuck” Cagle, shareholder and chair of the Education Law and Government Relations Practice Group at Lewis Thomason, has been appointed as Tennessee representative and counsel to the Council of Administrators in Special Education (CASE). 

In this role, Cagle will assist CASE, a group representing special education directors nationwide, in its meetings with the U.S. Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) committee in an effort to seek flexibility in federal regulations and use of funds for the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 school years. If this flexibility is not granted, school districts in every state have the possibility of facing numerous administrative complaints, due process hearings and the loss of federal dollars resulting from the provision of special education services during school closures during the pandemic.
