  • All Pennsylvania families deserve to have confidence that they are sending their children to Schools that are safe learning environments.

  • Incorrect reporting can lead to your LEA drawing unnecessary scrutiny and the misperception that your LEA may be an unsafe environment. 

  • Purposefully underreporting and drastic year to year fluctuations will draw additional scrutiny.

Common issues

Common Issues

  • Incidents involving a fight require two or more offenders associated to the incident.

  • Verify that firearms are indeed a firearm; there is often an indication of a bb-gun incorrectly listed as a firearm.

  • Inflated/duplicated Truancy Counts

    • Habitually truant is defined by the School Code as an unlawful absence for more than three (3) school days or their equivalent following the first notice of truancy given to the student. The first notice of truancy should be provided to the student after three (3) school days or their equivalent of unlawful absences from compulsory education within a specified time period. Each LEA should have specific policies regarding truancy.
