Discipline Action Identifier: Discipline
This data element is an identifier assigned by the local education organization to the discipline action. This is distinct from the generically-assigned Ed-Fi Action ID. Some incidents result in multiple discipline actions and dates for the same student. This action identifier is always required.
A separate discipline action submission is expected for each discipline action. For example, if an out-of-school suspension and expulsion occurred, then the student should have two discipline actions associated to a single discipline incident.
Multiple discipline actions can be submitted for the same student associated to one discipline incident by submitting different discipline identifiers.
USES: This data element is critical in tracking an incident to the correct student and discipline action that occurred.
