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 Student Incident Result (SIRS) 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 Student Incident Results (SIRS) files do not have to have matching suspension days for students.
  • There is NO validation between the Attendance (STAS) file and Student Incident Results (SIRS) file on the Days Suspended.
  • There is a validation that if you report a suspension in the Attendance (STAS) file, there must be an associated suspension in the Student Incident Results (SIRS) file between April 1st of the previous academic year through the end of the current academic year.
  • If you report a suspension in the Student Incident Results (SIRS) file there is no validation that there must be a suspension in the Attendance (STAS) file.
