A public íiearing on a pro tposed uniform discipline polic for all elementary and seconc ary Ann Arbor Public Schools drew a small crowd of about 25 persons last night to the Ann Arbor Community Center. Most of the audience, however, belonged to the committees which drafted the document. I Two more public hearings on the proposed policy are scheduled- at 8 p.m. Thursday at Slauson Junior High, and at 8 Jp.m. next Tuesday, May 27, at [Burns Park School. I The discipline policy is very 'similar to the present policies jfollowed in the public schools. [The main purpose for drafting the document, however, was to have a uniform, written discipline policy for the entire school district. Neil Mueller, chairman of the Steering Committee which drafted the document, said most of the audience last night was basically in agreement with the document. Alternative penalties to student suspension, however, such as detention rooms, were' suggested. Following the hearings and as-i sessments of the policy by the facuity, the document is expected to be presented to the Ann Arbor Board of Education for adoption by June 11.
