Scholarships for schools committed to moving away from punitive, exclusionary discipline
IF YOU’RE READY TO COMMIT TO CHANGE, WE’RE READY TO HELP YOU DO IT
As part of our commitment to reduce and ultimately eliminate discipline referrals, detentions, suspensions, expulsions, paddling, restraint, seclusion, drop-out, and disproportionality — and thanks to recent funding from several of our very generous donors — Lives in the Balance has launched its Changing Course School Discipline Initiative. This program will provide free training in Collaborative & Proactive Solutions to schools with (a) high rates of these punitive and exclusionary disciplinary practices and/or (b) disproportional application of these practices to Black and Brown students.
