Rethinking Expulsion and Suspension, Early Childhood

Rethinking Expulsion and Suspension Practices in Early Childhood Tuesday, August 25, 2015 4:00:00 PM EDT - 5:00:00 PM EDT

National attention is being directed to the issue of suspension and expulsion in early childhood, most recently with a White House statement on rethinking discipline, last year’s White House Summit on Early Childhood Education, and a joint policy statement on suspension and expulsion from the U.S. Departments of Education and Health and Human Services. This webinar will provide an overview of federal and select state data, policies and practices related to suspensions and expulsions of young children in early childhood education programs such as early learning centers, preschool programs and child care, and will provide policy and practice guidance to prevent expulsions from early childhood programs and to mitigate interactions related to behavior that might seem challenging. With federal and state policies under consideration and in current practice, states have a prime opportunity to respond to this significant issue, and this webinar will offer guidance for identifying key strategies in policy and practice that can make a difference.
