Which Colorado school districts deal with the most discipline issues? The Colorado Department of Education has compiled the data for the 2012-2013 school year (the most recent one available), and the figures are staggering. Several districts in the state handled well over 10,000 incidents during that span, and statewide, there were more than 1,500 expulsions and in excess of 7,000 law-enforcement referrals.

Which districts saw the highest volume? We've put together a photo-illustrated top ten, with figures in nine different categories for each. Count them down below.
