To stop push out, schools need to review their discipline policies to make sure girls of color aren’t being unnecessarily pushed out. Let Her Learn: A Toolkit to Stop Push Out for Girls of Color helps schools identify problem policies and implement a code of conduct that works for all students.
Here are the simple steps to follow in order to share the toolkit. If you have any additional questions, please reach out to Nia Evans at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Print the toolkit. (If you prefer e-mail, here is the link to share.)
- Deliver the toolkit in-person and/or e-mail it to your school principal (check your school’s website under Faculty/Staff Directory for his or her contact information). Below is a draft letter or email that you can personalize.
- Help us track the results by filling out this form letting us know where your school is and who you plan to share the toolkit with. This is an important step so we can track the impact and reach of the toolkit.
Dear (INSERT NAME),
As a (parent, community member, leader, alumni of the school, etc.), I want to share with you an important resource.
The National Women’s Law Center just produced a toolkit to help schools review their discipline policies and make sure girls of color are not unnecessarily pushed out. Let Her Learn: A Toolkit to Stop Push Out for Girls of Color helps schools identify problem policies and implement a code of conduct that works for all students.
I would love to know what you think about this resource and what plans our school has in place to make sure girls of color in school are getting the support they need.
I look forward to your response.
