This webinar explained the legal framework within which the Departments consider allegations of racially discriminatory student discipline practices and discuss hypothetical examples of school disciplinary policies and practices equitably and in a manner consistent with their Federal civil rights obligations.

The webinar also discussed recommendations contained in the Appendix to the DCL which are designed to assist schools in developing and implementing student discipline policies and practices equitably and in a manner consistent with their Federal civil rights obligations.
