A Puerto Rico Education Law Attorney Advises on Local Education and Charter Schools

Whether you’re founding a school or trying to grow your enrollment, there are many challenges that you can face along the way. Among those challenges is the legal framework within which you must operate. A Puerto Rico education law attorney from Delgado & Fernández, LLC can help you meet your legal and regulatory obligations to build the school your students deserve.

Deeply Involved in Puerto Rico’s Educational Landscape

Working with an experienced Puerto Rico education law attorney means you can expect knowledgeable guidance delivered quickly and cost-effectively.

Our attorneys have successfully represented some of Puerto Rico’s leading K-12 private institutions for decades. Puerto Rico’s education law landscape is complex and highly regulated. Our team specializes in industry norms applicable to real estate negotiations, school discipline, civil rights, labor and employment negotiations and disputes, litigation, and more. Our Education Law and Charter Schools practice team also advises charter schools on establishing and operating in Puerto Rico under the framework recently established by the 2018 Educational Reform Act. While charter schools continue to gain popularity as an alternative to traditional public education, their advancement is not free from regulatory hurdles and controversies. Charter schools must operate in accordance with their charter and meet the accountability standards and abide by the rules and policies established by their state authorizers. We help both new and established schools comply with all regulatory requirements so that they can continue to provide quality education to our children.
