School Districts To Ban Out-Of-School Suspensions

St. Louis, MO  (KTRS)  Three St. Louis-area school districts say they will end out-of-school suspensions for preschool students through third-grade students in the next two years.

That announcement from the school districts of Ladue, Normandy, and Maplewood-Richmond Heights made at an assemblyon Sunday for the Break the Pipeline campaign, an effort spearheaded by Metropolitan Congregations United to stop what it refers to as the school-to-prison pipeline.

School officials say they will instead use social workers, behavioral health specialists and other services to reduce the need to discipline students.

Maplewood-Richmond Heights says suspensions will be banned for the young students in the next school year. The Normandy and Ladue school districts promise to ban the suspensions by the 2018-2019 school year.
