This training guide discusses the topic of using data to promote equity in school discipline. The document looks at how and why school discipline policies are shifting from a zero-tolerance approach to one focused on prevention and keeping students in school. You will be able to review your district’s discipline policies, identify resources and example discipline documents to inform your district’s policy revisions, and begin to organize and plan a process for revising policies.
