Last Chance to Speak Out for Solutions Not Suspensions!

This month, the Pittsburgh Public School Board of Education will take a critical vote to ban suspensions from PreK-2nd grade for minor non-violent misconduct.

The policy change will:
* Add “gender identity and expression” to the list of student identity groups protected from discrimination
* Prohibit the out of school suspension of students enrolled in grades below the third grade for non-violent minor disciplinary infractions, as defined in corresponding administrative regulations to this policy, effective September 1, 2018.

We need you to tell the 9 elected School Board Members to vote YES!
*To sign up to speak, you must call the Board (412) 529-3868.
Call between 9:00 and 4:00 Friday 12/15. Last chance to call is the day of the hearing (Monday 12/18) BEFORE NOON.
*Email the Board of Education at BoardOffice@pghboe.net
