  • Ending Zero Tolerance: The Pipeline to Student Success (February 2018)

    Dates:

    Friday, February 23, 2018 at 9:00 AM - 12:15 PM

    Location:

    Ingham County Human Services Building, 5303 South Cedar Street, Lansing, MI 48911

    Description:

    Over the past 25 years, the nature and culture of discipline in schools has changed significantly. Disciplinary policy is much more formal, with broad-based punishments affecting many students. Instead of looking at student behavior individually, taking into account circumstances of an event, the students involved, and the safety implications for the school, many have chosen “zero tolerance” policies that limit the ability to look at situations on a case-by-case basis and according to individual needs. “Zero tolerance” policy adoption has led to increased involvement of law enforcement, suspension, and expulsion rather than strategies for helping students succeed(Center on Youth Justice, 2013). In this workshop, you will explore the history and impacts of the zero tolerance policies in K-12 in Michigan, including prevention programs, interventions, and the implications of the new bill, HB 5618, adopted in 2017.
