Student Behavior Data

The U.S. Department of Education requires OSPI to annually report the number of students in each school district who were suspended or expelled in the last year for several categories of behaviors or weapons violations. An OSPI Bulletin provides districts with detailed definitions for the data elements on which they are required to report. The 2013-14 reporting categories differed from previous years. Also of note, local school districts have significant control over disciplinary policies and sanctions for misconduct. Comparisons between districts are not recommended without further research.
