In-School Suspensions

 

The percentage of Pinellas County’s high school students serving in-school suspensions during the 2006-2007 school year increased to 26.9%, the highest rate in eight years. The percentage of middle school students serving in-school suspensions also increased, but not to the degree of increase exhibited among high school students. Although elementary school suspensions are at a very low rate, the percentage of students receiving suspensions increased to a new multi-year high.

Out-of-School Suspensions

The percentage of Pinellas County’s high school and middle school students serving out-of-school suspensions increased during the last two school years. Nevertheless, the long-term declining trend is still apparent. Although the trend of elementary school students’ out-of-school suspensions has been relatively flat, the last two years have increased.
