Discipline Data Connection for Students with IEPs

Students with disabilities are typically at higher risk for suspension, expulsion, and drop out than non-disabled peers. Installing systems and practices to reduce problem behaviors for all students has impact on the rate of discipline and risk of dropping out of school for students with IEPs as well.  Reducing office discipline referrals (ODRs) is an important step as ODRs predict out of school suspensions which are strongly related to drop out.
