Maryland Commission on the School-to-Prison Pipeline and Restorative Practices

In the 2017 Maryland Legislative Session, under the leadership of Delegate Alonzo Washington, (D-P.G.) House Bill 1287 was enacted to create a Commission on the School-to-Prison Pipeline and Restorative Practices. The Commission is charged with studying discipline practices in Maryland public schools; focusing on Maryland data indicative of the School-to-Prison Pipeline; and examining best practices for implementation and training in restorative practices to eliminate the disproportionate treatment of students, with a focus on engaging parents.  The work will culminate in recommendations on the establishment of a Collaborative Action Plan to redesign public school discipline practices. The Center for Dispute Resolution at the University of Maryland School of Law (C-DRUM) is chairing this Commission.

In order to assure that this work is shared in a way that is accessible to all interested stakeholders, C-DRUM’s website will host Commission meeting documents and background reading.
