Boardman Clark Welcomes Sherrice Perry

Boardman Clark is proud to announce that attorney Sherrice Perry has joined the firm. Sherrice will work primarily with the firm’s School Law Practice Group.

Sherrice joins Boardman Clark with extensive experience. She spent seven years with the second-largest public school district in Wisconsin - the Madison Metropolitan School District. Sherrice first served as the Coordinator of Progressive Discipline, overseeing and ensuring adherence to the student disciplinary plan and practices. Sherrice subsequently served as the Interim Title IX Coordinator, and then, more recently, as the Associate General Counsel with a focus in special education matters. 

During her time there, Sherrice represented the District’s interest in mediations, IEP team meetings, manifestation determination reviews, section 504 team meetings, expulsion hearings, and suspension appeal meetings. In addition to these duties, Sherrice organized numerous student programs, including anti-bullying campaigns and LGBTQIA+ student-support initiatives.

"Sherrice brings unique perspective and insight to our school law practice," says Doug Witte, Co-Chair of Boardman Clark’s School Law Practice Group. "Her first-hand experience with the complex issues facing school district students and staff on a daily basis is invaluable to us and our clients as she can assist districts with their own challenges in these areas. We are glad to have her on our team."
