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 2014-15 reporting
categories reflect changes from the previous year. 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.
Additional state educational data can be found on the OSPI
Data and Reports pages.
