The School of Law and School of Education at Loyola University are accepting applications for fall enrollment in their online certificate in school discipline reform. This part-time certificate program is designed to equip education professionals with the tools and skills needed to lead district- and school-wide initiatives that implement equitable and effective alternatives to exclusionary school discipline practices. The certificate is an applied, interdisciplinary program that incorporates restorative justice skills building, legal/policy analysis, needs assessment, action planning, and research on evidence-based practices to respond to student behaviors. Tuition scholarships are available for cohorts of two or more from the school, district, or charter network.
More information is available on the Loyola University website. Applications are due by August 31.
