Background: In 2014-15, the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) conducted a biennial review of data and discovered a disproportionality of African American students receiving referrals, suspensions and other disciplinary actions.

The Administration has been working with the U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights (OCR) to fulfill ten agreed upon action items to ensure the equity of discipline measures within the District and in compliance with the Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 42 U.S.C. 2000d (Title VI), and its implementing regulation, 34 C.F.R. Part 100, which prohibit discrimination based on race, color, or national origin by a recipient of Federal financial assistance.

In September 2020, the Administration provided a report regarding the submission of the district's end of year report to the Office of Civil Rights (OCR). At that time, the Board took action to direct the Administration to report its progress on a monthly basis. The January 2022 report and presentation are attached.
