This session was presented during BUILD 2022 National Conference.

This session will examine trends and variation in state expulsion prevention policies, based on information from a 50-state survey. A presentation on the survey results will highlight several features of states’ policies including program supports, such as professional development or infant-early childhood mental health consultation; changes in program standards and work conditions; and requirements for data collection. Leaders from Arizona and Alaska will describe expulsion prevention policies in their states; Alaska includes expulsion prevention policy in its QRIS while Arizona employs multiple levers in its policy, including expanded program supports and new requirements for data collection.
