Expulsion Data

Downloadable data files containing student expulsion data by ethnicity, gender, and program subgroup. Expulsion counts, cumulative enrollment, and expulsion rate data are provided.

The file includes state, county, district, and school level data. Refer to the file structure for further details regarding the file's contents. Data are not included for districts and independently reporting charter schools (IRCs) that did not certify their CALPADS End-of-Year 3 Discipline submission.

Note: An asterisk (*) appearing in a data field is used to protect student privacy.

PLEASE BE ADVISED: As a result of the statewide physical school closures that occurred in February/March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2019–20 suspension and expulsion data are not comparable to similar data from other academic years; however, the CDE has determined that these data are valid and reliable for the period of time that schools were physically open during the 2019–20 academic year. For more information information about the impact of COVID-19 on data reporting for the 2019–20 academic year, please visit the CDE COVID-19 and Data Reporting webpage.
