District responding

to suspension disparities

In response to the report of the New York State Attorney General’s Office, the City School District of Albany has reaffirmed its commitment to changing discipline practices and procedures that have perpetuated disproportionate suspension rates for black students and students with disabilities.

 

Two important individuals in that process are Independent Monitor Maxine Fantroy-Ford, Ed.D. (at left in photo above), and Chief Ombudsperson Valarie Ann Scott (at right). Please visit our Assurance of Discontinuance section to read more, and to find out how to contact the chief ombudsperson if you have complaints about student discipline.
