Letter from the Chancellor

 

 

 

 

Dear Families,

Ensuring that your child learns in safe, supportive, and inclusive schools is our top priority. To improve school culture and climate, we use preventive approaches that address the real causes of a conflict. We believe it is important to reinforce positive behaviors through teachable moments. At the same time, we hold students accountable for their actions. We want them to reflect on their behavior and repair any harm done.

To build a strong base on which students can grow and thrive, today our schools are adopting an updated Citywide Behavioral Expectations to Support Student Learning (Discipline Code). Changes include the use of guidance interventions, support measures, and progressive discipline tailored to a student’s social and emotional development. All updates are a result of a public review process that included hearings and feedback from community members like you.
