Discipline (Incident) data and Alternative Learning Program (ALP) Roster data must be submitted to DPI per state statute. Most schools enter incident data directly into the eSIS discipline module. Schools using 3rd party Software are required to produce incident data in the same file format specified for USDDC and deliver the data to DPI at the end of the school year.
Verified discipline data is due each year on June 30. Verifications are required for the number of each type of reportable acts each year, the number of short- and long-term suspensions, the number of expulsions, the number of impermissible uses of seclusion and restraint, and the number of transfers offered to and accepted by victims of violent crime. Charter schools and LEAs not providing discipline data in a timely manner may face sanctions.
The Discipline Data Reporting Procedures (pdf, 302kb) contain requirements for submitting discipline data, suggestions for finding and correcting errors, and an overview of the USDDC system, including file specifications and numerical codes for data. The Appendix contains the definitions for the 16 reportable offenses.
