Description

START PROJECT

In Collaboration with the Elmwood Park SEPAC & The Bergen Council for Young Children Present:

Addressing Disproportionality & Discipline

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) This is known as Disproportionality, which represents one of the most significant problems in education today at the local and at the national level.

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 Intervention and Supports (PBIS) framework and how it can be implemented to address disproportionality;

  • Gain tools to address different behaviors;

  • Learn what YOU CAN DO!

Presenters: Monique Dujue Wilson & Brenda L. Figueroa, Parent Group Specialists, START Project
