Self Review of Indicator 4A and 4B:
During the 2020-2021 school year, the District completed a self review of our data as related to the suspension of students with disabilities during the 2019-2020 school year. This review included an internal review of our practices, protocols, and processes regarding the discipline of students with disabilities. As a result of this review, the District made adjustments to these processes to ensure full compliance with State regulations. Specifically, the District adjusted the internal protocol for suspending students with disabilities to ensure that parents and guardians are provided with suspension letters no later than the day of suspension. Should you have questions about this review, please feel free to reach out to our office at (315) 341-2014.
