Discipline data is collected on all Georgia schools by the state Department of Education and the DOE recently released 2018-19 numbers on each system, including Madison County.

County school superintendent Michael Williams said school staff and teachers work hard to make sure county schools are well-disciplined.

"We are always concerned about the number of discipline incidents at each school and will continue to look for ways to decrease those numbers,” he said.
