Incident Management assists in accurately tracking, managing, and reporting school safety and disciplinary incident data, and is used to report all Discipline and Truancy incidents in South Carolina districts and schools. The Incident Management system captures more detailed data than is necessary for federal and state reporting and is needed for Table 5 reporting required by the Office of Exceptional Children.
State reportable incidents must be created at the school level via Special Functions. Incident types, as well as incident codes and subcodes, must be set up at the district level prior to creating discipline incidents.
PowerSchool Incident Management captures the following data:
- Time and location of the incident
- All persons involved in an incident
- All behaviors that occur within an incident
- Actions that were taken in response to the incident
Note: Incident Types and Code/Subcode Descriptions that contain a carat (^) were imported using the Load South Carolina Incident Management process. Do not edit or delete state-specific codes loaded using this process. If you remove a carat or delete a code, there is no way to tell which code was edit/deleted and version updates may be affected.
