About Kevin Skinner
As a former tenured teacher and coach in the public schools, Mr. Skinner has first-hand knowledge of how selective administrative practices, teacher culture, and overall school dynamics affect the student body. He has personally observed the good, the bad, and the ugly. In fact, his unique behind-the-scenes perspective has not only been insightful, but has been beneficial to parents taking on the school district.
During his tenure, Mr. Skinner faithfully adhered to the provisions of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB), the Individuals with Disabilities Educational Act (IDEIA), served on case conference committee (CCC) meetings, and assisted with the development of Individualized Educational Programs (IEP) for children with disabilities. Further, he was widely recognized as a zealous parent-student advocate because of his strong convictions that all students were entitled to a fair shake in the assessment and evaluation of their performance.
As a legal advocate, Mr. Skinner is a licensed attorney in the State of Indiana, and is well versed in the complex laws that govern students' rights in our schools. Additionally, he is a member of the Indianapolis Bar Association, Council of Parent Attorneys and Advocates (COPAA), and the U.S. District Courts for the Northern and Southern Districts of Indiana. He concentrates his practice on special education and school law, but has experience in representing clients in other matters including family, personal injury, criminal, and other civil and commercial litigation.
Prior to his practice in Indiana, he was fortunate to serve as a civil law clerk for the Arkansas Attorney General's Office, and spent a great deal of time working on projects ranging from education law to personal injury on state property. Additionally, he served as a compliance director with the Arkansas Department of Education and monitored school districts that received federal funds from the U.S. Department of Education. Further, his experience as a judicial law clerk for the State of Michigan has proven beneficial when trying to navigate the procedural nuances of trial litigation.
