Suspensions in city schools over the first seven months of the school year are down 10 percent compared to that period last year, officials said Tuesday. Over the first 110 days of school, 22,509 principal suspensions were handed down to city students, in addition to more than 6,400 lengthier superintendents suspensions. That’s down from 25,385 principal suspensions and about 6,780 superintendent suspensions made over that period last year, as arrests by school safety officers and overall crime in schools dropped as well.
