SUBJECT

Discipline, Crime, and Violence Report

RATIONALE

Attached is a copy of the 2017-2018 Discipline Summary. This data has been submitted to the state as part of our annual Discipline, Crime and Violence Report. This report is used in part as data determining persistently dangerous schools as required by the Virginia Department of Education. Some categories related to persistently dangerous schools include assault and battery with a weapon, schedule 1 & 2 drug violations with the intent to distribute, sexual assault, and weapons violations.

Administrators reported 1099 discipline referrals for 2017-2018; 360 at AHS, 360 at CMS, and 379 at the elementary schools. Not all discipline referrals are reported to the state because they have a discipline sanction that is considered a minor offense.

The total number of referrals is a decrease of 171 from the previous year.

School Resource Officers reported 355 referrals, an increase of 11 from the 2017 report. For clarification purposes, some categories of the SRO report do not match the divisionís summary report. This is a reflection of different terminology used by law enforcement and the Department of Education.

 

Based upon our data reported, no school within the Alleghany County Public Schools is considered persistently dangerous.
