Every student should feel safe in their school. All students should be treated with dignity, respect, and fairness. The same holds true for the school leaders, teachers, and staff who teach our students every day. The Bowser Administration, through the Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) and other partner agencies, continues to take steps to support schools in accomplishing this important goal. This support includes ensuring sound discipline policies and practices that lead to a positive experience for all. OSSE is committed to supporting schools as they work to protect the rights and safety of all students.
