Discipline Data

Reports and data about student discipline data, including suspension and expulsion counts and rates disaggregated by race/ethnicity, program subgroup, grade span, and academic year.

PLEASE BE ADVISED: The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in statewide physical school closures in February/March 2020 followed by the widespread implementation of distance learning during the 2020–21 academic year. The CDE recommends caution when comparing discipline data across academic years. For more information about the impact of COVID-19 on data reporting, please visit the CDE COVID-19 and Data Reporting webpage.
