Event Details

Addressing Disproportionality and Discipline

Disproportionality represents one of the most significant problems in education today at the local and at the national level. The results of decades of research consistently show that students of color, particularly African American students (and even more so for those with disabilities), are at significantly increased risk for exposure to exclusionary discipline practices, including office discipline referrals and suspensions.  (e.g., Fabelo et al., 2011; Losen & Gillespie, 2012; Shaw & Braden, 1990)

Join us for a discussion and activities to: 

  • Understand Disproportionality, what it is and how it effects our students and communities
  • Understand the Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports framework and how it can be implemented to address disproportionality
  • Gain tools to address different behaviors
  • Learn what parents/parent leaders can do to address disproportionality in their schools
