Indicator 4B. An administrative unit (AU) is determined as having significant discrepancy if 1) 5 or more students of a particular racial category received out-of-school suspension/expulsion for greater than 10 days, and that race’s suspension/expulsion rate is more than 4 times of the state’s rate for 3 consecutive school years. Such AU will receive a review of policies, procedures, and practices to determine compliance with requirements relating to the development and implementation of IEPs. Race/Ethnicities examined in Indicator 4B include: American Indian or Alaskan Native, Asian, Hispanic, African American, White, Two or more races, Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander.
