District Creates Discipline Review Committee
Crete-Monee School District 201-U creates Discipline Review Committee in response to new law
The first meeting of the new Discipline Review Committee was held at the Administration Center in the Superintendent’s Conference Room on December 19, 2016. The quarterly meetings, chaired by Board President Dr. Nakia K. Hall, are designed to provide feedback regarding student conduct, promote positive behaviors, and encourage advocacy on behalf of students and their parents/guardians to help promote a holistic foundation for student success.
The full committee is presently comprised of two board members, the superintendent, parents and administrative staff from the secondary and elementary level. The DRC is currently seeking interested individuals from our business and/or church communities.
The Discipline Review Committee will engage in the review and discussion of discipline data as well as provide feedback, without interference to policies and/or laws that govern the district. The DRC is formed under Public Act 99-456, formerly known as Senate Bill 100 (SB 100). The law is designed to address the school-to-prison pipeline and district processes regarding out-of-school suspension.
The committee’s feedback regarding discipline will be reported to the superintendent and Board of Education after each meeting.
Committee member Mr. Anthony Finch makes a point as DRC member Ms. Christal Hunt listens attentively.
The Discipline Review Committee will provide feedback regarding student conduct, promote positive behaviors, and encourage advocacy on behalf of students and their parents/guardians to help promote a holistic foundation for student success.
The district, in partnership with parents and community stakeholders, will help to ensure all students will become productive and responsible citizens.
