Time: 4-6pm (Pacific Time)

This webinar will explore the increasing trend across the nation of disproportionality in discipline and emerging strategies to address this issue.

Velma L. Cobb, Director of the Region II Equity Assistance Center at Touro College in New York, will present the national dimension of this problem, and Rose Owens-West, Director of the Region IX Equity Assistance Center (Region IX EAC) at WestEd, will present the California perspective as an introduction to Superintendent Patrick Sweeney of Napa Valley Unified School District in California.

Sweeney will describe district results and address several key components of their work including:

  • Strong Behavior Expectation Teams at each school
  • Data used to monitor, implement, and sustain (analyzes progress by socioeconomic and ethnic groups)
  • Restorative Practices used at all sites
  • Differentiated support to schools: Scale from 1 to 4 (emerging to strong teams)
  • Systemwide support for all teachers

This webinar is a collaboration of Touro College and University Systems in New York and California, the Region IX EAC, the Region II EAC at Touro, NY, and the Napa Valley Unified School District.
