Killeen Independent School District accounted for 44% of the state’s pre-K in-school suspensions for the 2017-2018 school year, according to a statewide report released Wednesday from Texans Care for Children, a nonprofit that reviews children’s policies in the state.

Texas school districts issued over 70,000 in-school and out-of-school suspensions to students in pre-K through second grade, and KISD issued far more pre-K suspensions than any other district in Texas during that school year, according to the release.
