Disparity Fact Sheets

In these fact sheets for Wake, Durham and Guilford County Schools, we report on school district demographics and opportunity gaps for certain groups of students in the 2017-18 school year. The fact sheets highlight the disproportionality of how school districts serve and punish students in the areas of academic achievement, school discipline and policing, and court involvement. The fact sheets report on the opportunity gaps of students in these districts by looking at the factors of race, disability, economic disadvantage and language. We also spotlight the practice of Disciplinary Reassignment and dive into academic and discipline disproportionality data for “alternative” district schools. Data from the fact sheets was mostly drawn from NC Department of Public Instruction and county public record requests.
