Develop and Implement a Computerized System to Collate, Analyze and Maintain Records on All Student Discipline Infractions and Administrative/Teacher Punitive Actions in the Seaford Senior High School.
Newman, Daniel G.
To comply with a 1975 memo from the Office for Civil Rights, the Seaford Senior High School in Seaford, Delaware, was required to maintain records on all student discipline actions. These records consisted of student disciplinary case reports designated by case file numbers. In addition, all discipline actions were to be logged by racial or ethnic designation, sex, school, offense, notice given, hearing authority, hearing sequence, time elapsed, testimony, findings, and disposition of the case. The purpose of this program was to develop a computerized system to record such data. The program was the product of contributions from administrators, teachers, secretaries, students, and district-wide personnel. The objectives of the program were to save time for administrators and clerical workers, to develop forms for the reporting of discipline offenses, and to develop information necessary for possible alternatives to suspension. The program used the computer center at a nearby vocational technical school. The author judged the program to be extremely successful and urged that it be viewed as a foundation for other computerized systems for such functions as scheduling students, keeping attendance records, filling out report cards, or keeping personnel records. The appendix contains copies of the forms used in the program. (Author/JM)
