1999-2000 Suspensions and Expulsions

Colorado Law (22-33-106 C.R.S.) defines grounds for the suspension and/or expulsion of students from public schools. These include but are not limited to carrying, bringing, using or possession of a deadly weapon, sale of drugs or controlled substance; commission of an act which if committed by an adult would be robbery or assault; habitually disruptive student; disobedience or open and persistent defiance of proper authority; willful destruction or defacing of school property; behavior on or off school property detrimental to the welfare or safety of other pupils or school personnel; and repeated interference with a school's ability to provide educational opportunities to other students.

The 1994-95 school year was the first year information from all public schools was collected in a standard reporting format. School districts were requested to report number of students suspended and total occurrences of suspensions. A student suspended more than once during the school year is counted only once in the student count but each occurrence is included in the suspension count.
