Alternatives to Suspension: Creative and Effective Ways To Increase Your Graduation Rates

Price: $250.00


Presented by Charlene Myklebust

School suspension is one of the leading contributors to the nation’s alarming high school dropout rate. What’s more, Education Department data shows students with disabilities are almost twice as likely to be suspended as their nondisabled peers, with Black children with disabilities facing the highest suspension rates. Such statistics are of particular concern as schools increasingly serve dangerous and at-risk students.

Get guidance directly from an experienced social-emotional learning and mental health consultant. Dr. Charlene Myklebust will identify creative, effective alternatives to suspension you can use right away to address discipline -- ultimately leading to increased graduation rates and improved school climate.

You and your staff will learn:

  • Which racial, gender, and special education disparities exist among students who are suspended
  • The unintended negative outcomes suspension can have on special student populations
  • Ways to foster behavioral skill acquisition and positive relationship-building among students
  • Social-emotional learning strategies that can help address and prevent problem behavior
