Below is some information on suspensions:

  • Only Suspensions that are full day suspensions need to be reported in the Attendance (STAS) file. Partial Day (ex .50 day) suspensions do not need to be reported. Even if partial day suspensions are reported in the Discipline (SDIS) file, they do not need to be reported in the Attendance (STAS) file.
  • Partial Suspensions for more than 1 day (ex. 2.50 days) will be reported in the Attendance (STAS) file as 2 days. The Attendance (STAS) files and Discipline (SDIS) files do not have to have matching suspension days for students.
  • There is NO validation between the Attendance (STAS) file and Discipline (SDIS) file on the Days Suspended.
  • There is a validation that if you report a suspension in the Attendance (STAS) file, there must be a suspension in the Discipline (SDIS) file.
  • If you report a suspension in the Discipline (SDIS) file there is no validation that there must be a suspension in the Attendance (STAS) file.
