In September 2016, Senate Bill 100 (SB 100) went into effect with the goals of transforming school discipline policies and practices, ending an era of zero tolerance in Illinois, and encouraging schools to find alternatives to suspension and expulsion. More than a year into implementation across our state, we ask ourselves: What has happened in Illinois schools since SB100 passed? What changes have schools made to implement the new law?
