Correctly reporting Safe School Incidents is required for State (UTREX) and Federal Reporting (CRDC). A school with no incidents is likely not in compliance and could incur a CRDC audit for the district. Even a simple bullying incident when no action other than a parent contact is taken should be reported in PowerSchool using the Incident Management Screen. Logs are not used for reporting to the state or CRDC.
Incidents initiated on the student page do not automatically include the selected student as the Offender. The Incident Builder must be used to define all participants.
The link to PowerSchool's Utah Quick Entry Guide is the official guid for State reporting. Details below include screen shots and notes regarding Incident Creation.
Only complete forms report correctly. Each form has two parts that must be completed. Below is an example of a complete Incident Form:
-- Form Top --
-- Form Bottom --
The offender(s') name must appear in the Participants' Offender box. If a victim is to be attached that name should appear in the victim's box. Each offender should have a Behavior, Action and Object attached and an attribute should be added on the Incidents Elements box.
