Add Served Codes to the Served List

After you finish adding your infraction codes, you can add served codes, which specify the amount of time served for an infraction. You can add up to 250 served codes.

  1. On the Shortcut bar, click Discipline, and then click Codes.
  2. Click the Served 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 served code.
  5. Codes can be alphanumeric, but must start with a letter and be no longer than four characters.


    Although served codes should reflect how students in your school serve penalties, your served codes don't necessarily need to match your action list. For example, you might create an action called "Detention for 5 hours (DET5)"; but because your students never serve five hours of detention at one time, you wouldn't create a five-hour detention served code.

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


      Served Code Settings
    A Type a description for the served code using up to 40 characters.

    Optional: Type the penalty you want linked to the served code; or click Penalty Code, and then click Lookup [F6] to select a penalty code from the list.


    Type the amount of penalty (such as the hours of detention) you want subtracted from the student's penalty totals when the served code is entered. Enter penalty amounts as whole numbers or decimals (0.5 for 30 minutes).


    You create the served code Detention for 1 hour (DET1), link it to the penalty Detention (DET), and assign it a penalty amount of 1. When the served code is applied to a student with 2 outstanding detentions, Discipline Plus subtracts 1 from the student's total outstanding detentions, leaving 1 hour of detention left to serve. (For details on entering served codes, see Manually Enter Time Served for a Penalty and Automatically Enter Time Served for a Penalty.)

    D Click Accept [F10] to save the code.
    E Print a list of served codes in the system. Click Numeric Order to print them in the same order as the served list.
