School Wide Information Systems
Through SWIS, school staff enter office discipline referrals online. The data are summarized to provide information about individual students, groups of students, or the entire student body over any time period. The reports available within SWIS allow teams to: Review school-wide referral patterns: The five basic reports in SWIS frame the context within which problem behaviors occur at school helping teams to answer these questions: How often do referrals occur? What problem behaviors occur most frequently in our building? Where are problem behaviors most likely to occur? When are problem behaviors most likely to occur? Which students are involved in referrals? Define behavior patterns in greater detail: Eight other reports allow teams to dive into the data, getting more detailed information about specific questions related to the overall school-wide patterns. Using these reports, teams can look at disproportionality by ethnicity, detailed information about individual students’ referral patterns and year-end reports to guide action planning for the upcoming school year.
