New data show a near 75 percent increase in the number of arrests at Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools elementary schools.
Overall, arrests were up by 1 percent from the 2010-2011 year. However, CMS high schools did see a 20 percent drop.
Officials said they will review the data for potential changes heading into next year.
"Our principals are going to work with the communities and any concerns that they may have," CMS Executive Director Scott McCully said. "And if there's any adjustments that we need to make, we'll certainly look at those adjustments."
McCully said parents also must play a role in how students behave at school.
