Webinar: From Rigid to Responsive

Announcement of Webinar: From Rigid to Responsive - Better Approaches to School Discipline 

Date: Wednesday, December 5, 2012 - 1:00pm - 2:30pm EST

Featuring: Jason Sinocruz, Staff Attorney for the Advancement Project and John Simmons, Executive Director of Student Services for the Denver Public Schools

In recent years, there has been significant debate about the unintended consequences of harsh discipline policies, and the disproportionate impact on students of color. School achievement is negatively affected by these rigid discipline policies, and it is also the gateway to involvement with the justice system and school dropout. Some districts and schools, however, are taking sound steps to adopt a more responsive and developmentally appropriate approach to school discipline.
