Purpose: This working group developed the Forum Guide to Crime, Violence, and Discipline Incident Data, which focuses on the use of crime, violence, and discipline data to improve school safety. The guide was created in collaboration with the Discipline Data Working Group of the U.S. Department of Education to ensure that it will be useful to states and districts reporting data to the Office for Civil Rights, the Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools, the Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services, and EDFacts.
