The existence of discrepancies in school discipline and the adverse consequences of punitive and exclusionary discipline have been well established.  The purpose of this continuing education course, developed using information from the National Center on Safe Supportive Learning Environments, is to assist schools and districts in identifying and analyzing the root causes of disparities and assist in creating an implementable action plan to address disparities in a strategic and sustainable manner. A three-stage method to accomplish this task is presented, which includes digging into data about school discipline, determining the root causes of discrepancies in discipline, and creating the action plan.
