Web Tool: Suspension Data by State or School District

Date Published: September 12, 2013

For those working every day to plug the school-to-prison pipeline, access to timely data on suspensions and disparities between school districts is critical. This web tool developed allows users to access that information for their state or school district in minutes.


This web tool quickly sorts through data on more than 26,000 U.S. schools and approximately 7,000 districts and presents the reader with clear yet detailed graphs based on the analysis published in two recent CCRR reports – Opportunities Suspended: The Disparate Impact of Disciplinary Exclusion from School  and Out of School & Off Track: The Overuse of Suspensions in American Middle and High Schools.


The web tool lets users access suspension data by state or school district according to:

  • Secondary school results
  • Elementary school results
  • K-12 school results
  • Comparison of elementary and secondary school results


The tool makes it easy for users to compare two districts and search for data based on race, ethnicity, English learners, students with disabilities, and gender. Users can even compare discipline rates by race/ethnicity that are further broken down by gender or by disability status.


The data derives from the U.S. Department of Education’s collection of discipline data from a sample covering approximately 85% of the nation’s K-12 students in 2009-2010.  The web tool will be updated with the latest data soon after it is released next year.
