Intended Audience: General and Special Education Teachers, Social Workers, Psychologists, Related Service Providers, Paraprofessionals, and Administrators.
This three-part professional learning series is intended to help participants understand that exclusionary practices have significant short and long-term negative effects on academic, social-emotional, health and wellness, and family outcomes of students. Participants will develop a common understanding of suspension, removal, and discipline, as well as influences, impacts, policies and procedures that contribute to the on-going suspension crisis in schools today. Additionally, we will explore effective research-based strategies for responding to student behavior and appropriate alternatives to suspension.
*PLEASE BE ADVISED, registration and attendance in all three sessions of this professional learning series is strongly recommended.*
