Bartlett City Schools are doing an excellent job using data to inform decision-making at the school and district levels. Check out their strategy below!
Bartlett City Schools 20-Day Period School Discipline Data Process:

- In-School Suspension
- Out-Of-School Suspensions
- Period comparison of exclusionary consequence from the 1st 20-day period to the current 20-day period.
- Exclusionary consequence comparison of all schools (Elementary, Middle and High School)
- Exclusionary consequence comparison of Elementary school and Middle schools.
School Level Data: All principals receive the following:
- A data sheet showing how many exclusionary consequences (ISS, OSS & Expulsions) were entered by each administrator at the school for the 20-day period.
- Overall numbers of exclusionary consequences for all schools for the 20-day period.
- Period comparison of exclusionary consequence from the 1st 20-day period to the
- current 20-day period for all schools.
