Kansas Discipline Incident System (KAN-DIS)

The Kansas Discipline Incident System (KAN-DIS) is an online web application that all accredited public schools use to provide information on individual discipline incidents. The application automatically generates IDEA student discipline data report as well as the ESEA Discipline Report based on the data submitted via KAN-DIS. The goals of KAN-DIS are: to provide a free, useful, KIDS-integrated web application that schools and districts can use to maintain information on a wide variety of discipline-related incidents; to ensure accurate and timely reporting of discipline incidents as required by Federal Special Education (IDEA) and Safe and Drug-Free School programs and; to lay the groundwork for research/analysis by districts regarding the relationship between discipline incidents and academic performance, special education status, demographic data, etc

Incident Reporting
Only the required incident data will be available to the State – all other data will be available only to the districts. Incidents will be entered into KAN-DIS in one of three (3) ways:

  • Via online individual discipline incident entry
  • Via batch upload of incidents from a school/district’s local discipline entry system to KAN-DIS
  • Via online summary data entry for ESEA Discipline reporting only (student level data must be provided for IDEA reporting)

Emergency Safety Interventions (ESI)

There are significant changes to the Emergency Safety Intervention Report for the 2015-16 school year. To help keep track of the data for your building, KSDE has prepared an Excel worksheet to assist you in collecting your data; you may choose to record your data in this Excel worksheet. When the Kan-Dis application opens (by December 1, 2015) you will then be able to transfer your data into the form in the Kan-Dis application.

Emergency Safety Interventions (ESI) Resources are located on the Kansas Technical Assistance System Network (TASN) website.
