Hey Big john, help separate fact or fiction! Rumor has it Christina School District is limiting it’s out of school suspension to the most serious infractions where felonies would apply? I know some districts use in-school suspension but what I am being told is concerning to teacher classroom control. The SRO’s and school principals will determining consequence. However, I am it’s always been the principal calling the shots for suspension and teacher can only assign detention without principal’s permission.
The Board of Education of the Christina School District(District) enters into the following
Agreement to resolve Office for Civil Rights (OCR) Case No. 03-10-5001 to ensure compliance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VI), 42 U.S.C. § 2000 d et seq., and its implementing regulation at 34 C.F.R. Part 100.
Most us know about the civil rights complaint Jea Street filed and the above agreement was the result of that complaint.
Keep and eye on Publius who’ll swoop in here to attack CSD and John Young, But God forbid if we raise concerns about some of charter schools discipline issues. Publius will say complaints and concerns are falsie and it’s just charter naysayers stirring the pot.
Regardless if the rumor is true or false, do you believe Christina should move into a direction of more in-school suspensions with students receiving behavior management intervention and have CSD utilize crisis intervention with a goal of positive behavior modification? Do we need a new approach in addressing student discipline?
As far as charter schools, do you support charter schools kicking out disruptive students lacking criminal behavior! Why should the district be required to take charter schools misfits?
