Rule Changes for Indicators 4A and 4B

The Exceptional Student Services Unit, with input from the field, has adopted new thresholds and guidelines in the supervision of Administrative Units and the measurement of data to the CDE for Indicators 4A and 4B.  Thus, starting with the School Year 2016-17 discipline collection data, the ESSU will apply the new rules to Indicator 4A and 4B.
