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
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)

Districts report seclusion and restraint incidents quarterly to KSDE through KAN-DIS, a secure web-based application.
