Disproportionality for Discipline: The Big Picture Significant Disproportionality 1. Reserve 15% of the federal funds to provide Coordinated Early Intervening Services (CEIS) for at-risk students 2. Review and revise policies, procedures and practices 3. Publicly report any revisions on policies, procedures and practices

OSEP/WESTAT Reporting Directions for Federal Data Report (FDR) – Discipline Data elements related to a discipline event for a student that must be reported according to law. Out-of-school Suspension “Incidences in which a child is temporarily removed from his/her regular school for disciplinary purposes to another setting (e.g. home). This includes removals in which no IEP services are provided because the removal is 10 days or less as well as removals in which the child continues to receive services according to his/her IEP.” FDR- Table 5
While Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) requirements are unique to students with disabilities excluded from school for more than 10 days, reporting requirements are consistent with those for students without disabilities unless otherwise indicated in local board policy. Two issues: Compliance with FAPE (Continuation of Service) Reporting Requirements
OSEP/WESTAT Reporting Directions for Federal Data Report (FDR) – Discipline “If, following a discipline offense, the IEP team meets and determines that the child’s current placement is not the least restrictive environment for that child, and therefore makes a permanent change in the child’s IEP placement, DO NOT report the child on the FDR for discipline. If the child is suspended pending an IEP team meeting in which a his/her IEP placement is changed, the suspension must be reported.”

Review of Discipline Record Discipline Record Layout: Fiscal Year Period System Code School Code Student ID Discipline Incident Number Data Type Indicator Discipline Incident Date Discipline Type Discipline Incident – Context and Location Teacher ID Discipline Action Code Discipline Action Auxiliary Code Administrator ID Event Identifier Continuation of Services
Continuation of services flag must be “Y” for Event Code 30 (Out-of- school suspension) beyond cumulative suspensions of 11+ days
Out-of-school suspension 1-10 days (cumulative) – No services required Out-of-school suspension 11+ days (cumulative) – Services required (Continuation of Services) Continuation of Service Significant Disproportionality/Significant Discrepancy data are not influenced by Continuation of Services.
DIS090 Continuation of Services: “For students that receive out-of-school suspension or expulsion, indicate whether or not the student continued to receive education services during the disciplinary action. Enter ‘Y’ if student received education services and ‘N’ if student did not receive education services.”
DISCIPLINE ACTION CODE DISCIPLINE ACTION CODE indicates the action taken by a school administrator or administrator’s designee (pursuant to O.C.G.A 20-2-731 and 20-2-740). Discipline Action Code & Type Description 00 Continuation of Incident An entry of “00” for a DISCIPLINE ACTION CODE is acceptable only when the DATA TYPE INDICATOR is “2” indicating that an event with multiple incidents for a single action has occurred. 10 Corporal Punishment Corporal Punishment - corporal punishment was administered pursuant to O.C.G.A 20-2-731. 20 In-School Suspension In-School Suspension - placed in a state in-school suspension program. 30 Out-of-School Suspension Out-of-School Suspension - suspended out of school. 40 Expulsion Expulsion - expelled.
New Discipline Warnings 1.1.1W861 – Warning change - When Discipline Action Code equals “20” (ISS – in school suspension) or “30” (OSS – out-of-school suspension), issue warning that the Discipline Action Auxiliary code should not be greater than twenty (20) days. Exception: skip warning if the Discipline Action Code equals “20” and the Discipline Action Auxiliary code equals ‘99’ (that is, the in-school suspension lasted less than one day 1.1.2W862 – New warning - When System Code, School Code, Student ID, Discipline Incident Date, Discipline Incident Type, Discipline Action Code and Auxiliary Code are the same for more than one discipline record, issue warning. This is a possible duplication in an extract generated by the local software. Since we do not have a time stamp for an event, we cannot issue an error. Although it is possible that the same incident/action could occur on the same day, it is highly unlikely. ( User message: Possible duplicate - The SYSTEM CODE, SCHOOL CODE, STUDENT ID, INCIDENT DATE, INCIDENT TYPE, ACTION and AUXILIARY CODE are the same for more than one discipline record. To see most current data, see Report DIS092.) 1.1.3W863 – New warning – For Discipline Action Code = ’20’ or ‘30’ only. When System Code, School Code, Student ID, Discipline Incident Date and Auxiliary Code (number of days suspended) are the same for more than one discipline record, issue warning. This is a possible duplication of the number of days a student was suspended. (User message: Multiple suspensions reported for same student and date. To see most current data, see Report DIS091.) Note: Both warnings W862 and W863 reference new reports created to assist districts with resolving possible duplicate records generated by SIS extract software.
Review of Discipline Record Multiple Incidents - (Data Type Indicator 2) Example: Student caught fighting(08) and other discipline incidence (24), causing out-of-school suspension for 5 days.
