QED - School Disciplinary Absences by School (Point) 2013-2017

This dataset presents the location of School Disciplinary Absences for Queensland state schools by year, semester and absence type. The data spans the years of 2013-2017.

State schools are required to report School Disciplinary Absences (SDA) for the school year in their School Annual Report. There are 4 categories of SDA: short suspension (1-5 days), long suspension (6-20 days), suspensions with proposal/recommendation for exclusion and cancellations of enrolment. A student may be suspended or excluded from a state school or schools because of disobedience, misconduct or other conduct that is prejudicial to the good order and management of the school. A student may also be excluded from a state school for contravention of a Behaviour Improvement Condition. Suspension prohibits a student from attending an educational institution for a nominated period of time (from 1-5 days or 6-20 days). Decisions to suspend a student are made by individual state school principals.

Please note:

  • AURIN has spatially enabled this data using the Queensland Department of Education - State and Non State School Listings.

  • Data is made available through a AURIN-QCIF-RIDL collaboration.

  • Geometries modified from State and Non-State School Listings 2012-2018, as provided by QED. For facilities which closed prior to 2012, including Richlands State School [1121], Lindum State School [1682], Wynnum North State school [221], Wynnum Central State School [87] and Hemmant State School [30], data cannot be represented spatially.

  • On 5 November 2010, state school principals were given the power to exclude students from their school. They may recommend the decision to their supervisor if they believe it is inappropriate for them to make the decision.

  • The information is displayed in terms of aggregate counts of incidents. These data do not represent the outcomes of any related appeal decisions.
