Transforming School Discipline: The Next Step
Students can't learn if they're not in the classroom.
But every year, thousands of Washington students are excluded from school. Students of color, low-income students, and special education students are disciplined at higher rates than other students, which contributes to Washington’s opportunity and achievement gaps and dropout rate.
During the 2013 legislative session, you helped us pass a law (SB 5946) that makes discipline data public and limits the number of days that students can be removed from class.
That was the first step in transforming school discipline policies. Now it's time to take another.
The Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) is inviting public comment on its implementation of the new law.
Join us for a series of Lunchtime LEVinars on the new discipline law, next steps, what you can do, and what transformed school discipline actually looks like.
Every other Tuesday in April: 4/1, 4/15, 4/29
