REVEALED: North Burnett schools with the most suspensions

DATA released by the State Government has revealed the state schools with the most suspensions in the North Burnett in 2019.

The new figures are broken up into both short and long suspensions, as well as cancellations and exclusions.

According to the Department of Education, a short suspension can last between 1-10 days, with a long suspension ranging from 11-20 days.

Burnett State College had the lion's share of suspensions in the North Burnett, dishing out 41 short suspensions and two long suspensions over two semesters.

Biggenden State School followed close behind, with 36 short suspensions and one long suspension last year.

Mundubbera State School had 17 short suspensions and a long suspension, while Monto State High School had 15 secondary and 10 primary suspensions over semesters one and two.

Gayndah State School had six short suspensions, Eidsvold State School had four, while Mt Perry State School had two short suspensions, and Dallarnil State School had one.

Students can be excluded from attending any state school for up to 12 months or permanently, depending if their behaviour is so serious that suspensions are considered not enough.

Monto State High School gave out one cancellation in semester two last year, while Mundubbera State School gave one exclusion in semester one.

Ipswich State High School topped the leaderboard for suspensions in the state, issuing a staggering 396 short suspensions in 2019.
