How many suspensions did your school have last year?

The district this week is running public hearings to get input about how to reduce the number of suspensions. About one in 20 Buffalo students were suspended last year -- but from school to school, the numbers varied dramatically.

In some schools, there were more suspensions than there were students. (Keep in mind that some students are suspended more than once.)

The numbers below indicate how many short-term suspensions (one to five days, assigned by the principal) each school had, along with the number of long-term suspensions (longer than a week, assigned by a district administrator) in 2010-11.
