BP: Bemidji Area Schools formally agrees to work on discipline rates

BEMIDJI -- Bemidji Area Schools formally agreed with the state Wednesday on a plan to reduce the district’s discipline disparities.

The Bemidji school district is one of nine to reach a recent agreement with the Minnesota Department of Human Rights, which has been pressuring school districts to reconsider their disciplinary practices since fall after noticing non-white students were suspended or expelled at a rate much higher than their white counterparts.
