Disciplinary Process

Managing the Disciplinary Process in SchoolFront

Managing Disciplinary Incidents in SchoolFront allows school staff members to ensure that all consequences assigned to students for specific behaviors are carried out and that all staff members are able to find information about the disciplinary history for any student if they need it.

Applicable System Roles

System users with the following roles can do this:

  • Administrator
  • Teacher

Step-by-Step Instructions 

The Disciplinary Process workflow in SchoolFront allows staff to log an incident and then change the status of the incident in the system as the incident is processed. Status include:

  • Pending = The incident is new and consequences have been assigned to the student.
  • Escalated = The student did something additional to reap additional consequences on top of those prescribed for the original action (e.g. the student was assigned detention and didn't show up, or the student engaged in another fight before they attended detention).
  • Completed = The student fulfilled the requirements of the consequences and the incident is closed (e.g. the student was assigned detention and went to detention at the date and time on which it was scheduled).
  • Canceled = The incident is no longer valid/necessary and can be ignored.

When a Disciplinary Incident is first opened it is automatically put in the "pending" state. Teachers and administrator users can change the state of incidents in the system as necessary.
