Know Your Rights: Learn about Boston Public Schools Students’ Rights around School Discipline

Tuesday, August 13, 2019 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM
Union Capital Boston - 1544 Columbus Avenue, Roxbury, MA


Description:

Join us at Union Capital Boston for a presentation on students’ rights with regards to school discipline and school exclusion (suspension and expulsion), led by attorneys volunteering with the BBA’s Service Innovation Project on Dismantling the Cradle-to-Prison Pipeline. In particular, this presentation will focus on new rights that have recently been established for Boston Public Schools students under a settlement agreement with Greater Boston Legal Services.

This presentation is geared towards students, families, and community members connected to Boston Public Schools, but any BBA members interested in learning more about this subject are welcome to attend.  Please feel free to invite anyone who may benefit from this information.  This program is free and open to the public.
