Supportive School Discipline Webinar Series

Continuing the efforts of the Federal Supportive School Discipline Initiative, the U.S. Departments of Justice, Education, and Health and Human Services* are pleased to announce the Supportive School Discipline (SSD) Webinar Series. The Series is designed to increase awareness and understanding of school disciplinary practices that push youth out of school and many times into the justice system, and provide practical examples of alternative approaches that maintain school safety while ensuring academic engagement and success for all students. Information about the first two Webinars in the Series is provided below:

This Webinar will examine the impact of punitive and exclusionary school discipline approaches and identify traditional school discipline practices that are known to be ineffective. It will also showcase community examples of positive alternatives to school discipline that reduce student alienation, increase student engagement, and decrease justice system involvement.
