Topic: Changing the Landscape of Discipline:  Illinois’ New Discipline Reform Law and Prevention-Oriented Approaches to Student Misbehavior 

 

Location: ARC, 505 N. County Farm Rd.

 

Summary:  National discipline reform advocacy efforts and those specific to Illinois are advancing rapidly. These efforts are in response to two primary long-standing concerns: (1) the overuse of suspension and expulsion for minor behaviors and (2) disproportionate application of these practices with racial/ethnic minority youth, students in special education and/or with academic problems and those that identify as LGBT. Illinois recently enacted comprehensive discipline reform legislation (Public Act 099-0456), which will require that districts make significant changes in their school discipline policies prior to the law’s effective date in September 15, 2016.

 

This presentation will review the history and background supporting the need for school discipline reform, national and federal efforts, and the details of Illinois’ new discipline reform legislation.  The presentation will also describe a model code of conduct that is being developed by an interdisciplinary collaborative as a suggested means for districts to comply with the legislation and implement a prevention-oriented best practices approach to school discipline.

 

 

Only DCBA members will receive CLE credit for this meeting.

Please pre-register for lunch.
