Printed copies of the request will be dropped off to each of you this afternoon, with a copy for the Superintendent. We did not include Director Barlow on this email, as we did not know if he had returned to work. Feel free to forward to him when it is appropriate.


In addition, we have provided links to two documents that we have found helpful in furthering our understanding of the use of data in addressing discipline disparities:


Thank you for your consideration. We look forward to working with you on this request.
