Responding to Changes in State Law and New Federal Guidance on Nondiscriminatory Administration of School Discipline, 2014
In response to increasing public awareness around ethnic disproportionality in school suspensions and expulsions, the U.S. Department of Justice and the Department of Education have released new guidance on the prohibition of discrimination in the administration of school discipline on January 8, 2014. The Oregon Legislature passed a bill to end mandatory “zero tolerance” expulsion requirements that will go into effect in July of 2014.
- What exactly does the new guidance mean?
- What will be required from administrators and teachers in relation to these changes?
- How can the new approach be incorporated into school procedures and hand books?
- What are some resources and tools available for schools to facilitate the implementation of the guidance?
