Student Engagement - Age standardised stand-down rate per 1,000 students, by Region, 2015

Ministry of Education

Definitions

Stand-downs: A state or state integrated school principal may consider the formal removal of a student through a stand-down from school for a consecutive period of up to 5 school days. A stand-down, for any student, can total no more than 5 school days in a term, or 10 days in a school year. Students return automatically to school following a stand-down.
Expected stand-downs: How many cases would have occurred if the national rates for each group were applied to the school or region. Expected numbers are not a desired number of cases nor are they a projection.
Age standardised rate: ‘observed’/’expected’*’national rate per 1,000’. Care should be taken when examining age-standardised rates, especially in the cases when small numbers are involved.

Purpose of collection

chools must effectively involve students in learning to ensure educational success. Stand-downs, suspensions, and exclusions help provide indications of where engagement in productive learning may be absent and behavioural issues may be present. Stand-downs, suspensions and exclusions are not measures of student behaviour but measures of a school’s reaction to behaviour. What one school may choose to suspend for another may not.
