Watching: the discipline rates at your Georgia school

Georgia parents can find out how many discriplinary actions their school has by using a new “dashboard” assembled by the Governor’s Office of Student Achievement.

The agency announced in August the release of its “K-12 Student Discipline Dashboard.” The interactive website shows suspension and expulsion rates, with the number of students involved. It also breaks down rates by gender, and allows filtering by school district and school, for the last four school years.

Users will also find an interactive flow chart at the bottom that allows them to explore incident types and disciplinary reactions based on student race and gender.
