The partnership with the farm - on hold this school year while the farm's owner is on maternity leave - is one of many initiatives to reduce suspensions that county schools have implemented in recent years, according to Karyn Lynch, chief of student services for Prince George's County Public Schools.
Lynch is "very encouraged and hopeful" that suspension data for the 2010-2011 school year, due out this summer, will reverse the trend. She said she bases her hope on the "increased attention and priority from our principals, from our school administrators and from our students."
