Colorado School Discipline Report Card

The report that is having such an impact on students, teachers, administrators, judges, lawyers, parents and the public is the Colorado School Discipline Report Card. The data is so crucial for ending the school to prison pipeline that Padres & Jóvenes Unidos released the second edition with updated data and key findings:

  • Statewide, the use of out-of-school suspensions, expulsions, and referrals to law enforcement is trending downward.

  • There continues to be huge variability in the practices used statewide, with many districts continuing to have high, and even increasing, usage of harsh disciplinary practices.

  • While students of color continue to benefit from the improvements statewide, there continue to be substantial racial inequities that demand heightened attention.
