Significant Discrepancy in the rate of suspensions and expulsions of Children with IEPs. NDDPI uses the “state bar” of five percentage points higher than the state rate to flag an LEA as having a significant discrepancy in the suspension and expulsion of Children with IEPs. Thus, any district with a suspension and expulsion rate of a 5.0% higher than the state rate of suspensions and expulsions of Children with disabilities for more than 10 days is flagged for significant discrepancy. However, there must be at least 30 Children with disabilities in the denominator of a suspension rate for it to be flagged.
Indicator 4a. Did the district have a significant discrepancy in the rate of suspensions and expulsions of greater than 10 days in a school year for children with IEPs?
Indicator 4b. Did the district have a (a) significant discrepancy, by race/ethnicity, in the rates of suspensions/expulsions of greater than 10 days in a school year for children with IEPs; and (b) policies, procedures or practices that contribute to the significant discrepancy and do not comply with requirements relating to the development and implementation of IEPs, the use of positive behavioral interventions and supports, and procedural safeguards?
