School Safety and Discipline Report (SSDR)

The School Safety and Discipline Report (SSDR) collects information on all drug, violent and criminal offenses that occur on school property, as well as the discipline action (suspensions, removals, expulsions) served by the student offender. Non-drug, non-violent and non-criminal offenses that result in the student offender being removed from class or school are also collected.
