Notes

9. Expulsions that are limited to serious offenses, not "willful defiance"Includes the percentage of expulsions that are not the result of willful defiance, as a percentage of all expulsions. The designation of “willful defiance” is problematic because of its ambiguity. While there are no clear criteria for offenses that constitute willful defiance, it can include disruptive behavior, such as eye rolling, coming to class late or talking back to a teacher. Children Now analysis of data from California Department of Education, DataQuest, data on total expulsions and total expulsions coded as willful defiance, 2010-11 and 2012-13 (July 2014). For the Modoc county 2014 Scorecard data point, Children Now created a 3-year average combining 2010-11, 2011-12 and 2012-13 data in lieu of a low number event.

NA (Not Available)Data that are not available are noted as NA. The most frequent reasons for NAs include the unavailability of longitudinal data, fewer than 10 cases (low number events), and statistically unstable estimates.

*Data that are created from a 3-year average or a larger confidence interval are noted with an asterisk (*).
