Processing myStudent SESIR Referrals

As mentioned under separate cover, all referrals processed electronically (STAR or myStudent) must be printed for student/parent distribution. (Reference Action Required: MIS #413, SESIR Reporting and Discipline Reminders memo.)

Due to limitations when printing a SESIR related referral in myStudent, administrators processing such a referral will have to handwrite all SESIR related information and data elements after printing the form. It is imperative that all such information be provided to parents. It is also important that SESIR information is correctly logged onto the printed copy for expulsion and Disciplinary Alternative Placement (DAP) hearing documentation should a school choose to pursue such a hearing.

Questions/concerns specific to myStudent can be referred to:
