Exclusion includes both expulsions and out-of-school suspensions.  The exclusion grade was calculated by

  • adding the rate for out-of-school suspension to the rate for expulsions and assigning a grade from zero to 100.  The lower the rate of suspension/ expulsions the higher the grade.
  • subtracting a penalty for the rate of exclusion for preschool to 3rd grade.  The penalty was 1 point for every exclusion for preschool and kindergarden ann 1 point for every 3 exclusion per 100 for 1st grade through 3rd grade
  • subtracting a penalty for the rate of exclusion for 7th grade  through 9th grade. The penalty was 1 point for every 5 exclusions.

Because of the penalty it is possible for a school district to have an exclusion grade well below "0."
