School Environmental Safety Incident Reporting (SESIR)

Injury-Related

Definition:

The "Injury-Related" element is described as "A code indicating whether or not the incident involved serious bodily injury."

The data element is further broken down into three separate codes as follows:

  • Code A - More Serious: Death or "Bodily injury which involves a substantial risk of death; extreme physical pain; protracted and obvious disfigurement; or protracted loss or impairment of the function of a bodily member, organ, or mental faculty." 18 U.S.C. 1365(h)(3).
  • Code B - Less Serious: "Bodily injury which requires immediate first aid or subsequent medical attention that does not meet the definition in Code A above."
  • Code Z - None: "The incident did not involve serious bodily injury."

Additional Guidelines

Note: US ED reporting requirements mandate that FDOE collect data on "Violent Incidents with Physical Injury" and "Violent Incidents without Physical Injury." In order to collect this data, FDOE has identified SESIR incidents that fall into these categories, and additionally requires that districts report whether or not these incidents were "Injury-Related."

Note: The person(s) injured could be a student, a non-student, or both.

Note: The incident type Homicide (HOM) must always be reported as a Code A - More Serious on the "Incident, Injury-Related" (PDF, 34KB) element.
