If a student has a longer term In-School Suspension that includes a 1/2 day, you need to report the half day as a full day.
For example, an In-School Suspension of 6-1/2 Days should be reported as 7 Days.
The DOE does not require districts to report an In-School Suspension of 1/2 Day or less.
The DOE requires districts to report an Out of School Suspension that includes ANY portion of the day. An Out of School Suspension of a 1/2 Day or less should be reported as a full day.
NOTE: This is based on Massachusetts School Safety and Discipline Report (SSDR) requirements for 2014-2015. This is subject to change by the DOE.
