As part of its work to promote safe and equitable schools, the ACLU of Delaware partnered with the Charter School of New Castle (CSNC) to create a model for an inclusive school climate. This most recent effort is a response to ongoing disciplinary disparities faced by certain student populations. Black students continue to have the highest out-of-school suspension rates than any other demographic at 12.4%. Students with disabilities and low-income students also have high suspension rates at 11.1 and 11.9%. ACLU-DE and CSNC argue an inclusive school environment can help keep all kids in the classroom.
