Add Incident

Add a New Disciplinary Incident to SchoolFront

When a student requires disciplinary action, you can log a disciplinary incident in SchoolFront to track the disciplinary process through completion and make other school staff members privy to the actions you've taken with the student.

Centrally managing disciplinary actions makes it easy for school staff members to check a student's disciplinary record should they be contacted by a students parent or guardian, to handle student behavior in a consistent manner, and to escalate discipline should they encounter further issues with the student.
