Percentage distribution of serious disciplinary actions taken by public schools, by type of offense and type of disciplinary action: School year 2009—10
! Interpret data with caution. The coefficient of variation (CV) for this estimate is 30 percent or greater.
NOTE: Responses were provided by the principal or the person most knowledgeable about crime and safety issues at the school. Serious disciplinary actions include removals with no continuing services for at least the remainder of the school year, transfers to specialized schools for disciplinary reasons, and out-of-school suspensions lasting 5 or more days, but less than the remainder of the school year. Respondents were instructed to respond only for those times that were during normal school hours or when school activities or events were in session, unless the survey specified otherwise. Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding.
