IAASE Virtual Fall Conference – Significant Disproportionality: Legal Compliance and Proactive Steps to Increase Equity
Franczek partner Kendra Yoch will be presenting a session titled “Significant Disproportionality: Legal Compliance and Proactive Steps to Increase Equity” with Denis Adams from Waukegan Community School District 60 at this year’s IAASE Virtual Fall Conference. With the current attention to educational equity and new implementation of the significant disproportionality regulations, schools are turning their attention to disparities in the identification, placement, and discipline of students of different races and ethnicities. This session will provide insights into how disproportionality is determined and what data reveals about current rates of disproportionality. We will lead participants to identify potential causes and develop plans to increase equity and reduce disproportionality to stay in legal compliance and better meet the needs of all students.
