Is your child at risk of being suspended or expelled from school? Do you know what your rights are? Join us for a Know Your Rights event on Wednesday, November 4, from 6-8:15 pm at the Matrix Center (13560 McNichols E, Detroit, MI 48205). Sponsored by organizations like the ACLU of Michigan, this event will give you the chance to share your concerns about school discipline in Detroit, learn what your rights are, and connect with other parents who want to fix Detroit’s broken school discipline system. Education advocates and attorneys will be present to answer questions, provide concrete tips on fighting the school discipline process, and facilitate future parent-led advocacy efforts.
Break out sessions will include topics on Special Education for parents of children in special education so that they can receive more details on the slightly more complicated discipline process for students with special needs.
Refreshments will be provided and child watch is available for those who need it. Contact Jessica Frisina at 516-551-7894 or firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
