The Disciplinary Incident Reporting System (DIRS) reporting system enables both the department and school districts to comply with state and federal reporting requirements for suspensions, expulsions, special education and dangerous weapons. DIRS is a web-based, password protected system through which all public school districts must report disciplinary incidents that result in either suspension or expulsion. This page contains important information about DIRS including deadlines and announcements.
Minnesota Statutes, section 121A.06, Subdivision 3, requires the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) to annually report on disciplinary incidents, and incidents involving dangerous weapons, that occur in Minnesota public schools. Data for this report is obtained from MDE’s Disciplinary Incident Report System (DIRS). Copies of these reports are available below.
DIRS is open for disciplinary incident submissions for the 2014-15 school year.
DIRS reports are due on July 31, 2015. If you have already started entering your DIRS data, your data is safe.
