The Pyramid Equity Project (PEP) was funded to gather and disseminate information and strategies to promote positive behavior interventions and support to help improve children’s social competence in order to prevent the suspension, expulsion and discipline disparities that exist in early childhood programs (Fox, 2017). The Pyramid Equity Project develops tools, materials, and guidance to address the bias, implement culturally responsive practices, and use data to understand the discipline equity issues by implementing the Pyramid Model for Promoting the Social Emotional Competence of Infants and Young Children (Fox, et. al, 2003).
