's EDFacts IDEA Discipline Data Infographic
provides basic information about the EDFacts
files used to submit IDEA discipline data to the U.S. Department of Education. The interactive infographic is intended as a resource that consolidates information available in the six separate IDEA discipline EDFacts
file specification documents. The infographic outlines details about discipline data for children with disabilities ages 3 through 21 that must be included in the annual submission of EDFacts
files C005, C006, C007, C088, C0143, and C144. Data reported in these files include counts of children with disabilities with in-school and out-of-school suspensions and expulsions, length of and reason for disciplinary removal, and count of disciplinary removals due to drugs, weapons, serious bodily injury. Data in these EDFacts
files are the same as the discipline data for CWD previously reported in OSEP Table 5.
