Recommendations of the Crime, Violence, and Discipline Reporting Task Force.
National Center for Education Statistics (ED), Washington, DC.
The National Education Statistical Agenda Committee of the National Forum on Education Statistics established a Task Force in 1995 to study how a state or local education agency might best collect and report data on the incidence of crime, violence, and disciplinary behavior. The Task Force, which consisted of a core group of data providers from six state and local education agencies, received input from Federal and State agencies. This paper is presented as a model for the voluntary use of agencies interested in developing or improving their system for collecting data on crime, violence, and discipline. Two types of records are recommended for the system to function. One is an incident record and the other, a participant record. Critical to the linking of incident records with participant records is a single unique incident identifier. Key concepts about incidents, such as the type, location, contextual factors, and the presence of alcohol or drugs, are listed. Definitions are provided for categories that include school environment, referral action, and incident type codes. (SLD)
