Student Offense

For authorized users, the Student Offense history displays when a user clicks the Student Offense container on the “Student Details”. The system will display a button next to each record to open and view the record. Users may only view records in this container, edit will not be available.

The Student Incident data in Student Details is divided into two containers Student Incident Results and Student Offense. Either sections are accessible when a user clicks on either container headers from the Student Details page. However, if an incident does not involve a statutory offense, only an Incident results record will be available. All records under each container are read-only in this section even if a user is assigned both SINC Edit and View roles.


Account Roles Needed

Since this page only provides View-Only accessibility users only need the following roles to access this section.

  • Student Search
  • SINC View

An authorized user may only view all offense records of a student regardless of who reported it.

NOTE: A User will NOT have the ability to edit nor ADD an offense record from this section of CALPADS, even if the SINC Edit role was assigned to the user account. To manually report an incident online, LEAs should proceed to the Incident Data section of CALPADS instead.


Accessing Student Incident Results and Offense Section

The Student Incident Results and Student Offense sections are accessible when a user clicks on either container headers from the Student Details page. The system will display the student’s historical incident records per incident and the associated incident results. If a user clicks the Open button, the system will display the Student Offense modal page with the respective fields populated with either values from the student’s existing record or the specified system default values.
