Student Discipline Practices & Implications

The Weinberg Y in Waverly, 900 E. 33rd Street, Baltimore, MD
The Public Justice Center is joining us to provide outreach and training regarding student suspension, expulsion, and other exclusionary discipline practices in Maryland public schools. They will share data and student stories that demonstrate why suspension and expulsion are ineffective, harmful, and have a disproportionate impact on students of color and students with disabilities. In addition, they will provide detailed information on the laws governing student discipline, and what students and families can do when faced with a suspension, expulsion, or other disciplinary removal. Finally, they're presentation will introduce positive practices to create healthy school climates and share school discipline resources for students and families.
