In recent months there have been requests from the Durham community to be part of the conversation about suspensions, particularly among African-American males and students with disabilities in Durham Public Schools (DPS.)
This December, DPS will host four Community Conversations with parents, non-profit and faith-based organizations, local businesses, government officials, higher education, housing communities and DPS employees. DPS is committed to working together with the community as One Durham to find common solutions that will lead to better outcomes for all students.
