4 Texas Education Code (TEC) 37.008(m-1) Under TEC (m-1), failure to report all disciplinary removals and truancy actions as required by state and federal law may result in a review by the commissioner of education and notice to the local school board of any problems noted in the district’s data, or a violation of a law or other rule.This review may also result in a notification to the county attorney, district attorney, criminal district attorney, as appropriate, and the attorney general. This provision can apply to missing, inaccurate, and/or falsified information/data.
5 Introduction to the PEIMS 425 Record 425 record data is required by TEC, Chapter 37, P.L No Child Left Behind (NCLB), and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA) 2004, which includes students who are receiving special education and related services.A PEIMS 425 record is required for each disciplinary action taken against any student which results in the removal from his regular classroom or when truancy charges have been filed against a student and/or his parent.Multiple violations are sometimes committed in the course of one disciplinary event. The appropriate code to use in this event is the offense code representing the most serious violation. DO NOT make multiple entries in the Discipline Reason Code field.Multiple consequences are frequently administered for a single offense. A PEIMS 425 record must be recorded for each disciplinary action that results in a removal.425 records are reported at the end of the current school year, and are a part of PEIMS Submission 3.5
6 Removal CategoriesEvery disciplinary action that results in the removal of a student from any part of their regular academic program will be categorized in one of the following general categories:Suspensions ( in & out of school )DAEP assignmentsExpulsions to the Juvenile Justice Alternative Education ProgramDAEP & JJAEP ContinuationsNew: HB requires school districts to provide notice to a foster child’s educational decision-maker and caseworker regarding certain events that may significantly impact the child’s education.6
7 Removal of Students who Receive Special Education and Related Services For disciplinary removals of a student who is receiving special education and related services from the student's current educational placement, a change of placement occurs if the removal is for more than 10 consecutive days (CFR § § ).The ARD committee that deals with the change of placement must review the student's IEP to detail the special education and related services to be administered to the student while he is removed for discipline reasons.Be careful not to confuse the 10-day change of placement requirement for special education purposes with the 1-day removal requirement for 425 record reporting purposes.
8 Removal of Students who Receive Special Education and Related Services A 425 record is required for all students who are receiving special education and related services and are removed from their regularly scheduled classes for one day or more.A change of placement occurs when the removal is for more than 10 consecutive days, and a change of placement may occur when the removal is for more than 10 cumulative days in a school year based on factors such as the length of each removal, the total amount of the time the child is removed, and the proximity of the removals to one another.An ARD committee must be involved when the removal or series of removals constitute a change in placement.
9 Behavior Location Code Behavior Location Code indicates where a student committed an applicable offense that is enumerated in Texas Education Code or (On/off campus, school related activities, etc…).C190 code added (Behavior Location Codes)00 - Not Applicable01 - On Campus02 - Off Campus, but within 300 feet of campus property line03 - Off Campus, but at a school sponsored or school related activity04 - Off Campus, and further than 300 feet from the campus boundary (Student was not in attendance at a school sponsored or school related activity)05 - On campus of another school district, or while in attendance at a school sponsored or school related activity of another school district

14 Types of Disciplinary Codes There are two types of Disciplinary Codes:LOCAL (non-numbered)ASCO – Administrator/student parent conferenceASPC – Administrator/student/parent conferenceBUSP – Removal of bus privilegesCNTR – Behavior or conduct contractCOUN – Referral to drug-free schools counselor and/or appropriate agencyDENT - DetentionOSCV – Student Code of Conduct ViolationPCON – Parent ConferencePEIMS (numbered)02 – Conduct punishable as a felony04 – Possessed, sold, used, or was under the influence of marihuana or other controlled substance06 – In school suspension11 – Used, exhibited, or possessed a firearm21 – Violation of student code of conduct26 – Terroristic threat41 – Fighting/Mutual Combat (Must involve 2 or more students from the same campus)ANDThe Offenses-Consequences Chart has a complete list of disciplinary codes.
15 Mismatching PEIMS/Local Codes With the exception of the Local Bullying Event/Concern, there must be no mismatching of codes: The Disciplinary Action Reason (offense) code and the Disciplinary Action (consequence) code must all have either PEIMS codes or LOCAL codes.DO NOT mix PEIMS codes with LOCAL codes for any one incident, unless you are using the Bullying code along with a PEIMS code.
16 Discipline Action Reason Codes that result in Mandatory Removal to a DAEP (07) 02 – Felony (school related)04 – Possession, selling, or under the influence of a controlled substance- DAEP or JJAEP05 – Possession, selling, or under the influence of alcohol - DAEP or JJAEP06 – Abuse of a volatile chemical – DAEP or JJAEP07 – Public lewdness - DAEP08 – Retaliation against district employee – DAEP or JJAEP22 – Criminal mischief – DAEP or JJAEP26 – Terroristic threat – DAEP or JJAEP27 – Assault against employee – DAEP or JJAEP (with bodily injury)28 – Assault against non-employee – DAEP (with bodily injury) (Victim Letter required)34 – school related gang violence - DAEP35 – False alarm, false report – DAEP49- Engages in deadly conduct – DAEP55/56 – Required to register as a sex offender – DAEPThe Offenses-Consequences Chart has a complete list of disciplinary action reason codes.

18 Truancy (42, 43, 44, 45)Truancy reporting is a federally mandated requirement under No Child Left Behind (NCLB).A PEIMS 425 record on truancy can only be generated after the court has made a finding of truancy.If the court hearing does not occur during the school year (i.e. summer months) in which the truancy charges were filed, a truancy entry should NOT be made in Chancery for the current school year. A truancy record could be filed the following school year only if the student enrolls and is in attendance in the district the following year with the first date of enrollment as the date of the disciplinary action.If the court makes a finding against both the parent and the student, a PEIMS 425 record is required of the student. Schools have the option of entering a PEIMS 425 record for the parent with a different incident record.If the court makes a finding against only the parent and not the student, a PEIMS 425 record is entered for the parent.
19 Disciplinary Action Assigned Date Date of Disciplinary Action is the date that the disciplinary assignment was ordered. This date may or may not:Differ from the disciplinary infraction date.Reflect the date on which the disciplinary assignment begins. For continuation assignments, this date reflects the first day of the continuation.The date must be PRIOR to the student’s withdrawal from school. A date equal to or later than the withdrawal date will result in a PEIMS error.The date must be within the school calendar year.

22 Reporting Discipline in Chancery First, record a discipline incident record by going to Student Behavior in the control panel.The SMS automatically assigns an incident number to the incident record. This incident number CAN NOT BE EDITED.By creating the incident record first and then adding the students involved, you will ensure that all persons involved and all actions taken will have the same incident number as required by PEIMS.NOTE: Any other path may result in different incident numbers for parts of the same incident and will result in PEIMS errors.The following screens will walk you through the proper method of entering disciplinary events into Chancery SMS.

34 What is Bullying?Definition from the HISD Code of Student Conduct:Bullying, meaning engaging in written or verbal expression, expression through electronic means, or physical conduct that occurs on school property, at a school-sponsored or school-related activity, or in a vehicle operated by the district and that:(1) has the effect or will have the effect of physically harming a student, damaging a student’s property, or placing a student in reasonable fear of harm to the student’s person or of damage to the student ’s property;(2) is sufficiently severe, persistent, and pervasive that the action or threat creates an intimidating, threatening, or abusive educational environment for a student;(3) exploits an imbalance of power between the student perpetrator and the student victim through written or verbal expression or physical conduct; and(4) interferes with a student ’s education or substantially disrupts the operation of a school.
35 Coding Bullying Incidents in Chancery Local Bullying CodingIn the case of Bullying, a local discipline code, BB, has been defined. This code should be used in all cases determined to be bullying.When the discipline action taken for the bullying incident removes the student from his regularly scheduled classroom, you must use a PEIMS code such as 21-Code of Conduct Violation or 28-Assault under Penal Code to explain the reason for the removal. You should also assign the local code BB to indicate that this event involves bullying.If the event did not result in removal from class, the local code for bullying may be used with another local Action Code such as ASCO-Adm Stu or Parent Conf.
