The Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) is committed to ensuring all students in the District of Columbia are provided equitable access to educational opportunities.
This report responds to the recent Pre-K Student Discipline Amendment Act of 2015 (D.C. Law 21-12; D.C. Official Code § 38-236), which requires OSSE to publicly report on the state of suspensions and expulsions in the District based on data from the preceding school year submitted by local education agencies (LEAs) and community-based organizations (CBOs). This report reflects discipline data submitted to OSSE by the LEAs through a variety of different collection methods for the 2015-16 school year. None of the CBOs from whom data were collected reported disciplinary incidents in the 2015-16 school year.
