Mixed bag for Cabarrus, Kannapolis school dropout and suspension rates
CONCORD- Cabarrus County Schools had 104 reportable crimes occur in last year according to the N.C. Department of Public Instruction’s Consolidated Data Report. The report was released to the General Assembly last week and includes information on suspensions and dropout rates.
According to the report, Cabarrus County Schools reportable crime rate is 10.59 percent. The report also says Kannapolis City Schools had eight reportable crimes putting its rate at 5.57 percent.
The data used in this annual report were largely collected in the PowerSchool Incident Management Module. Schools initially entered their data in PowerSchool, and it was extracted to a state discipline dataset at year’s end.
Data consolidation and verification procedures were handled by DPI with assistance from the Technical Outreach to Public Schools (TOPS) at NC State University. The Safe and Healthy Schools Support Division of NCDPI authored the general findings and compiled the report.
