CPS Suspensions & Expulsions Preliminary SY13-14 Data

We are sharing some preliminary suspension and expulsion data from the Chicago Public Schools for the 2013-2014 school year. Once more detailed and finalized numbers are available we will share.


  1. On July 2, 2014, the Mayor’s Office, Chicago Public Schools and the Chicago Police Department convened a roundtable with Attorney General Eric Holder to discuss improvements in school safety since the 2010-2011 school year. They provided media members and other assembled guests with a handout that listed student safety outcomes.

    Compared to the 2010-2011 School Year, this school year (2013-2014) there were:

    • Over 27,000 fewer out of school suspensions – a 33% drop in out of school suspension rate
    • Nearly 1,300 fewer CPS students referred for expulsion – a 37% drop in referral for expulsion rate
    • Over 1,000 fewer in-school arrests of CPS students – a 35% drop in the in-school arrest rate
