The TA guide describes the methods a state might use to appropriately determine which of its districts has a significant discrepancy (including a significant discrepancy by race or ethnicity) in the rates of out-of-school suspensions and expulsions totaling greater than 10 days for children with disabilities.

After presenting a set of six basic rates, the guide presents a series of methods for determining significant discrepancy, giving a step-by-step example of the use of each method. For each method, the guide includes the question that the method answers, how to interpret its results, and related considerations. Before outlining and discussing the rates and methods, the guide identifies three factors that states must consider: minimum cell size requirements, racial/ethnic reporting categories, and the differences between the reporting requirements for B4B and significant disproportionality. Part B data managers and Part B coordinators are the primary target audiences for the guide.
