We want your feedback on the recommendations of the Student Discipline Task Force.
In January of 2015, the Student Discipline Task Force was created to analyze the division's current student discipline data with the goal of making recommendations to assist the school division in achieving three objectives:
- Reducing the number of suspensions administered throughout the division;
- Closing the disproportionate gap that exists in the number of suspensions and/or expulsions administered to African-American male students compared to those administered to students in other demographic groups; and
- Maximizing instructional time for all students in the classroom.
Over the course of the past year, the task force has met to look at the school division's discipline data as well as research studies and discipline reports from other divisions in order to come to their recommendations. Feb. 2, the task force presented its recommendations to the School Board. These recommendations are here for your review and will be available for your feedback through March 1.
