Data Notes:

The GFSA has provisions in place that allow local officials to refer expelled students to an alternative school or program.

Six states - Colorado, Michigan, Montana, Utah, Virginia, and Wisconsin - did not provide information on the number of GFSA violations that were referred to an alternate placement.

Puerto Rico did not submit 1998-99 GFSA data.
