  • For a school of fewer than 300 enrolled students (per the school's Fall 1 certified Primary Enrollment Count for the academic year - LEA view) the number of student expulsions in that academic year for any of the California Education Code violations delineated as a Persistently Dangerous Offense, is greater than three.

  • For a larger school (per the school's Fall 1 certified Primary Enrollment Count for the academic year - LEA view) the number of student expulsions in that academic year for any of the Persistently Dangerous Offense California Education Code violations is greater than one per 100 enrolled students or a fraction thereof.
