W6575 Alternatives To Suspension

This course will discuss recent guidance issued by the U.S. Department of Education on school discipline, including suspension practices. The Department asserts that many schools over-rely on zero tolerance policies and exclusionary discipline practices at significant cost to students and society as a whole. The report also finds that African-Americans and Latinos are suspended and expelled from schools at disproportionately higher rates than their white peers.

Department recommendation for producing positive and safe school environments while reducing suspension and expulsions focus on:

1. Evidence-based prevention
2. Instituting developmentally appropriate discipline practices
3. Ensuing that discipline is administered in a culturally fair and equitable manner.

This course will include a discussion of a number of practical alternatives to suspension, many of which have been implemented by Wayne County Schools implementing Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS).

Target Audience
The audience for this course are school administrators, PBIS team leaders and school climate team leaders.
No Sessions available for registration.
