Discipline Rates by Year

The "Discipline Rates by Year" chart breaks down the discipline rate for various student groups at each campus by the six-week reporting period for the given fiscal year. The chart displays the percentage of discipline incidents1,3 per group for the six weeks while tooltip data shows the overall factor2 of discipline rates4 for the group.

Additionally, the chart ceiling can be modified to values other than the default value of 100% for clarity. Clicking on the group in the chart legend will also show or hide that group from the chart.


  1. Discipline incidents are counted if the resulting corrective action taken results in missed class time for the student.
  2. The overall factor of discipline rates for a group represents the difference between the discipline rate for all students and the specified student group's discipline rate.
  3. Incident rate percentages are calculated by dividing the number of discipline incidents that occurred in a given six weeks divided by the number of students enrolled at any point in time during the same six weeks.
    Example: 10 discipline incidents occurred in a group of 200 students during the six weeks. This results in a 5% discipline rate. The incidents could be caused by:
    ● 10 students, each with 1 discipline incident
    ● 5 students, each with 2 discipline incidents
    ● 1 student with 10 discipline incidents
    ● Any other combination that adds up to 10 incidents
  4. Note that the rates are based on the number of discipline incidents, not the number of students with a discipline incident. This means that the incident rate for a student group with a small number of students is influenced to a greater degree by the repeated actions of individual students than a student group with a large number of students.
    Example: During a given six weeks only 2 students, student A and student B, caused discipline incidents. Each student had 5 discipline incidents.
    ● Student A is in group 1. This group contains 100 students resulting in a 5% incident rate.
    ● Student B is in group 2. This group contains 20 students resulting in a 25% incident rate.
    So, even though students A and B have the same number of incidents, the incident rate for group 2 is higher since group 2 has fewer students than group 1.
