School Environmental Safety Incident Reporting (SESIR)
The School Environmental Safety Incident Reporting (SESIR) System currently collects data on 26 incidents of crime, violence, and disruptive behaviors that occur on school grounds, on school transportation, and at off-campus, school-sponsored events, during any 24-hour period, 365 days per year.
Incidents are reported by schools to the districts which, in turn, provide the data to the DOE. Per F.S. 1002.20, parents of public-school students have a right to access school safety and discipline incidents as reported pursuant to s. 1006.07(9). To view the state reported discipline data:
