This report describes the most current state and district suspension rates, and covers both trends and racial disparities in the use of suspension in California. A spreadsheet accompanying this report enables any reader to find their own district's most recent disaggregated data, as well as three-year trends for out-of-school suspensions, all of which can be compared to other districts in California. We hope that policymakers in the state and across the nation will take note of the state- and district-level progress, and of the large disparities indicating that a great deal more effort is warranted. Two appendices are included: (1) Study of the Relationship between Rates of Out-of-School Suspension and Achievement in California; and (2) Calculating Suspension per 100 Enrolled Using Cumulative or Census Enrollment.
