2017-2018 SSDR Update:

All districts reporting SSDR via SIF or Legacy must map their iPass incident codes to the new NCES Offense Type Codes. Please refer to the following steps and recommendations for mapping.

The iPass Incident codes selected in the Behavior Record must be mapped to a corresponding SIF 1049 - Incident Code and the Consequence codes selected must be mapped to a corresponding SIF 1054 - Discipline Action.

At a minimum you should map all of the Report to DOE Offense Codes (1-19) and Discipline Action Codes (1-6).

Since any iPass Incident that results in a DOE reportable consequence (ie. suspension, removal, expulsion) must be reported to the DOE, it is advised to map all iPass values used by your district. 

IMPORTANT NOTE: Each iPass Incident code should be mapped to only ONE SIF Value code

NOTE: After SIF Mapping is updated, SIF districts will need to send the SIF Objects for DisciplineIncident. Click here for more information.

Go to SIF Agent > SIF Table Mapping  

Go to SIF Table = 1049 – Incident Code

Note: Large districts will have the mapping table broken down by School. Be sure to map incidents at EACH School.

Select the iPASS Incident Code (for all schools) that corresponds to the SIF Code Description. 

iPass Support recommendations for mapping the MA DOE Offense Codes (1-19): *(Updated 2/16/18 - see PDF Attached)

IMPORTANT NOTE: Mapping Option Changes for 2017-2018

The DESE discontinued the following codes in 2017-2018:

1800 (formerly Harrassment; Nonsexual)  *(Use 1897)
3100 (formerly Theft) *(Use 3110)
3500 (formerly Vandalism) *(Use 3510)

** Check your SIF Mapping for 1049 - Incident Codes and move the iPass Incident Code mapping to a new SIF Value. **

** Also make sure that the Offender DOE Fields > Offender Related To selection does not use one of these discontinued Offense Types. **
