There are 181 school districts in Colorado. That means a lot of kids. With all those kids, at least some of them are going to get into trouble.  The Colorado Department of Education’s latest figures for the 2012-2013 school year show which districts had the most suspensions and expulsions.

Ranking the districts by the number of out-of-school suspensions, Larimer County’s Poudre  R-1 District and Weld County’s Greeley 6 District made the top 10.

At #9 was Poudre R-1.  The district saw 27 expulsions over the school year but made the top ten by having 1,408 out-of-school suspensions.

At #6 was Greeley District 6.  Only three students were expelled during the school year, but they did have 2,174 out-of-school suspensions.

#1 on the list was Denver County 1 School District. They saw 78 expulsions and over 6,250 out-of-school suspensions.

The district that had the most expulsions was Colorado Springs 11 District with 182; they had only 1,043 out-of-school suspensions, however.
