CUSD 200 Discipline Improvement Plan Template 21.22.2.docx
Summary: On August 5, 2021 the Discipline Disproportionality Committee presented a plan for the 2021-2022 school year that addressed discipline disproportionality. All middle and high schools were to share their prior years discipline data with the faculty and staff by October 1, 2021. Also, buildings were asked to monitor their student discipline data on a monthly basis to see trends and locations of violations. Throughout the 2021-2022 school year the SEL/CPI training was conducted for all CUSD certified staff members that focused on SEL/CPI/Restorative Conversations. This training was aimed at helping give the staff the tools to help de-escalate situations with students. Also, the leaders of the Discipline Disproportionality Committee have been monitoring the current 2021-2022 discipline data, and working with multiple schools to take a deep data dive on that data. District 200 has completed the improvement plan on the ISBE approved template. It is required that the Board of Education officially approve the plan.
