Discipline Resources

Disparities in the use of school discipline by race, gender, and sexual orientation have been well-documented and continue to place large numbers of students at risk for short- and long-term negative outcomes. (Carter et.al, 2014)

The MSAN Disproportionality in School Discipline Working Group has worked over the past several years to identify resources and best practices for eliminating racial disproportionality in school discipline.

We have broken our work into four main areas:

  1. Overview of Discipline Disproportionality
  2. Culturally Responsive PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports)
  3. Alternatives to Suspension
  4. Restorative Justice/Restorative Practices
