Add Infraction Codes to the Infraction List

With your penalties and actions added, you can start editing and/or adding your infractions. Infractions describe violations of your school's policies. Discipline Plus provides several default infractions which are linked to default actions. You can edit or delete the default infractions, and you can create your own. Your infraction list can contain up to 250 infractions.

Although optional, linking actions to your infractions increases efficiency and enforces fairness when disciplining students. Discipline Plus enters the appropriate actions (by occurrence) when you or another staff member enters an infraction. You can override default actions when adding or editing an incident.

  1. On the Shortcut bar, click Discipline, and then click Codes.
  2. Click the Infraction list tab.
  3. Click Add [F2] to move to the first unused record in the list.
  4. In Code, type an abbreviated code for the infraction.
  5. Codes can be alphanumeric, but must start with a letter and be no longer than four characters.

  6. See the figure and table below for the remaining options:
  7. View, Edit or Print Infraction List dialog box

    Optional: Under Default Actions, click next to 1, and then click Lookup [F6] to select a default action for the first occurrence of the infraction. Repeat this step as necessary to link a total of five actions to the infraction.

    Example:

    If you create an infraction for Cheating (with the code CHEA), you can link the action Internal suspension for 1 day (ISU1) to the first occurrence, Internal suspension for 2 days (ISU2) to the second occurrence, and External suspension for 1 day (ESU1) to the third occurrence.

    If you know the code for the action you want use, you can type it in the Code column.

    If you don’t want to assign an action for the first infraction, leave the first action code blank.

    C

    Click Accept [F10] to save the code.

    D Print a list of infraction codes in the system. Click Numeric Order to print them in the same order as the infraction list.
