This is PPT from the USBE School & Student Discipline Summit. I attended to get further clarification on the thoughts of locking curriculum as our truancy process has us doing as our 10 day removal. As per Carol Anderson at the USBE, anytime a student’s curriculum is locked we need to count that as suspension. Desi Laughlin, K12 CR Director of Special Programs, added that we also have to account for the time frame that it will take for K12 to respond to unlocking curriculum.
As an administration, we need to re-look at our policies and procedures to ensure that we are capturing this data and reporting it accurately in our end of year reports. In addition, we need to ensure that we accommodate the needs of special education students.
