Make your voice heard on student discipline regulations
November 8, 2013
In response to intensive pressure from MSEA and other education groups, the State Board of Education has postponed action on proposed new discipline regulations and has extended the public comment period. This is a significant victory for those concerned about the unintended consequences of the proposed regulations.
Improving student discipline issues should be a top priority, but educators’ voices need to be heard to make sure that any changes truly help students and are feasible for school systems and do not take away from local decision making. Make sure the State Board hears from you—click here to email them now.
