Score: 62.0

Rank: 110 /1067

Exclusion Factor

Score   73.4

Rank    517/1067

Exclusion includes both expulsions and out-of-school suspensions. The exclusion grade was calculated by (1) 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. (2) subtracting a penalty for the rate of exclusion for preschool to 3rd grade and (3) subtracting a penalty for the rate of exclusion for 7th grade through 9th grade.

Subjective Behavior Factor

Score   0.0

Rank    638/1067
Exclusions include Expulsions and Out-of-School Suspensions. Exclusion for subjective behavior and many other non-violent behavior should be limited. The Subjective Discipline grade was calculated by assigning a grade from 0 to 100 for the percentage of disciplinary occurrences that were based on disruptive/disobedient behavior. Up to 20 points were deducted if the district had any exclusions for truancy or use of tobacco. The maximum possible grade was 100 and minimum was a -10.

Racial Disparity Factor

Score   80.0

Rank    78/1067

A racial disparity rate was calculated for Exclusions. Exclusions include out-of-school suspensions and expulsions. . A rate was calculated using the race with the highest rate and the race with the lowest rate The lowest of the rate was divided into the highest of the rate. If the lowest rate was 0 than the highest rate was divided by zero A grade was assigned based on that calculated rate. If a school had no racial disparity rate it was assigned Р0". The choice to give those schools a zero was done to not-privilege the lack of diversity or the failure to report.

OSSE means "Out-of-school suspensions and expulsions."


Rate means is a ratio calculated by the Ohio Department of Education that allows compaison between population sizes. Here, the rate is the incidence or occurrence per 100 students.


Percent of Disruptive/Disobedient Behavior from the total discipline occurrences


A ratio was calculated based on the highest and lowest disciplinary rates based on race. The higher rate was divided by the lower one. Some districts did not have a calculated rate because they are either reported no information or they reported only one race.
