Discipline Action Identifier: Discipline
The Discipline Action Identifier data element is a locally-assigned unique identifier (within the school or school district) to identify a discipline action. It should align with the Discipline Descriptor (Action) data element.
The Discipline Action Identifier is distinct from the Discipline Action ID, which is auto-generated and assigned by Ed-Fi.
Some incidents result in multiple discipline actions for the same student. A separate discipline action submission is expected for each discipline action. For example, if an out-of-school suspension and expulsion occurred for one student, then the student should have two discipline actions each one associated to a single discipline incident.
Multiple discipline actions can be submitted for the same student associated with one discipline incident by submitting different Discipline Incident Identifiers.
Discipline Action Identifier is a required data element.
USES: This data element is critical in tracking an incident to the correct student and discipline action that occurred.
