5/23/2013 – Az SAFE Processing Window

The Az SAFE data submission deadline for inclusion to the Discipline report within the ESS Annual Data application is Wednesday, July 10, 2013 @ 5:00 p.m.

Although PEAs are encouraged to report disciplinary incidents to Az SAFE as the events occur during the school year, it is possible to wait until the end of the year to submit all disciplinary incident data to Az SAFE. This data is queued for daily processing that occurs after business hours between 5:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. As the deadline approaches, the volume of submitted files increases. As a result of this high volume, many files may not get processed until the next processing cycle.

If a PEA waits until July 10 to submit data to Az SAFE for the first time, there is a risk that file may not get processed for inclusion to the Discipline report if there is a high volume of activity during that night’s processing window.

PEAs are strongly encouraged to submit disciplinary incidents for students with disabilities as early as possible to avoid this risk.

Questions specific to Az SAFE should be directed to Barbara Michlin, Az SAFE Coordinator.

Questions regarding the discipline report with the ESS Annual Data application should be directed to ESS Data Management.
