AttachmentsJul 20, 2018 Notes

 

 

Cathy, Phil, Ray and I met last night to identify materials that we want to provide to the School Board for their study session in Aug. 16. Here is the set of four documents that we have identified:

 

 

 

 

Cathy also wanted to share the following two articles with the group (Cathy: I can’t remember if we said these should be included in the school board packet)

 

 

 

Please review these documents and let us know if you have questions or concerns about providing these to the school board. If you have any additional materials that you’d like us to consider for inclusion in the board packet, please email them to me by Tuesday, July 24. We don’t want to overload them with things to read. Materials should focus either on best practices for discipline data collection/presentation/interpretation and/or how use discipline data to shape policies that assure greater fairness. Our plan is to share these materials as an FYI at the CFT meeting on July 30.

 

In addition, we’d like you to review the most recent RPS discipline data presentation and based on recommendations/best practices included in the four documents above, please indicate what additional data you think we should be requesting from RPS.

 

Here is a link to the June 19 discipline data presentation

I’ve attached Cathy’s analysis of which of our recommendations were incorporated into the presentation

 

 

Finally, I’ve attached some additional information related to the MN Dept of Human Rights event in Rochester this week

 

 

Thanks!!
