CPS) CHICAGO—Chicago Public Schools (CPS) releases today a mid-year data report revealing a 60 percent reduction in suspensions and 38 percent reduction in expulsions across all grades in School Year 2014-2015 (SY 14-15) compared to the first semester of last school year. These results follow the District’s revisions to the Student Code of Conduct (SCC) last year, which provide a more equitable approach to student discipline and promote positive learning climates and keep students engaged in school.
