The New Federal School Discipline Guidance: What it Means for State Boards of Education

This webinar is now on-demand! Watch the full event here.

Earlier this year, the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Justice jointly issued school discipline guidance to school districts and schools across the country outlining key principles for improving school climates and eliminating discipline disparities that persist among minority and special education students.

Ensuring equal educational opportunities for all students can be difficult in an age of instructional mandates and limited resources. But state boards of education can play a proactive role in addressing these challenges by working with school districts to cultivate positive school experiences and identify, prevent, and redress discriminatory discipline.

Join NASBE on May 20, 2014, from 3:00 to 4:15 P.M. (EST) for a webinar discussion with Anurima Bhargava, chief of the Educational Opportunities Section at the U.S. Department of Justice, Kristen Harper, special assistant in the Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services at the U.S. Department of Education, and NASBE Project Director Kimberly Charis, who is an expert on school discipline, and state policymakers as they review the new school discipline guidelines and discuss state-level initiatives that are helping school districts and schools meet their legal civil rights obligations.
