Background: In September 2020, the Board directed the Administration to report progress and updates on discipline disproportionality on a monthly basis.

This work is aligned with the Five Priorities for Success with the vision of creating a positive school climate for all students. Schools utilize proactive strategies to support students and engage with alternatives to suspension when appropriate. Administration uses this data to strategize the best use of the resources at hand, servicing all schools with Tier 1 supports and focusing on those demonstrating a need for additional supports.

The September 2022 report and presentation is attached.
Fiscal Impact Statement: N/A
Implementation and Assessment Plan
Recommendation: The recommendation is:
1. That the board direct the Administration to develop a pilot program to address discipline disproportionality by targeting chronic disruption, suspensions in schools with the highest suspension rates for the 2023-24 school year, with the plan to be presented to the Board by the March 2023 Board cycle.
2. That the plan that is presented include, but not be limited to any staffing and/or training needs for program implementation, any needed building modifications, any other tools necessary for full implementation of this pilot, and an analysis of the efficacy of the implementation of this pilot program.
