This report describes how the Regional Education Laboratory Northeast & Islands at EDC supported the formulation and implementation of a new data- and research-based discipline policy in one mid-sized urban district. The district examined a national report on districtwide suspension rates, conducted a detailed analysis of internal data, compared suspension rates with those of other urban districts, and consulted research on the relationship between out-of-school suspensions and academic outcomes.
