Data Pipeline Interchanges - Special Education Discipline


The Discipline interchange file contains discipline data on students with disabilities for the school year.  The discipline interchange data contains information related to the date of the incident and the action data contains information related to “Disciplines:” (Suspensions and Expulsions) and “Removals" (Unilateral Removal by School Personnel or by a Hearing Officer) as a result of the incident. The action removal length is only the days removed when the student was determined to be a student with disabilities.  This information is used in the following snapshot: Special Education Discipline.


The 2017-2018 Discipline Interchange will be available April 2, 2018. All errors should be resolved by August 23, 2018. Final submission is due August 30, 2018.
