Special Ed (IDEA) and Suspension/Expulsion in Student Record data collection

With so many new rules added and several of the old rules updated with regards to Discipline incidents/actions reporting in Student Record for Special Ed Students, it's imperative that the Data Reporting/IT teams for districts work closely with their respective Special Education departments to ensure that the reporting of Out-of-School suspensions/Expulsions for Special Ed students is in line with the current Rules/guidelines by the DOE.

Here are a couple of examples of very specific rules :
Discipline Procedure for a student with an IEP

Reporting requirements for SWD students

Given all of these rules, there should be greater emphasis on accuracy of discipline data.
To help districts with that, we have added an "SWD" column to both Discipline Incident Details and Action Details reports with further drill-down capabilities to review list of such incidents/students by school and student lists by school. Screenshots follow:
