Hearing for the Student Saftey Act
Tuesday, April 14
City Hall, NYC
Begins at 1pm

The Student Safety Act (SSA) requires quarterly reporting by the DOE and NYPD to the City Council on school safety and disciplinary issues, including incidents involving arrests and suspensions of students. Since its enactment in 2011, the SSA has provided policymakers and the public with data to study the impact of disciplinary practices. The enhanced transparency has fueled important conversations and policy changes to keep students in the classroom.

Now, in 2015, amendments are needed to increase data transparency and to ensure the students, parents, advocates, educators and policy makers have a complete picture of New York City’s school discipline practices and their impact on our city’s children. More info in attached PDF!
