DISCIPLINE A-TEAM

The Discipline Change A-Team was created in Summer 2020 in response to Alignment’s Explore process.

There has been a long and deep conversation happening within the Nashville community around the topic of discipline and discipline disparities. Research has shown that once students are on the receiving end of harsh discipline policies this, too often, leads to an even worse trajectory throughout their lives. This A-Team is taking a very close look at the current local data and policies around school discipline and looking at creating prevention measures that keep students out of this trajectory.
