After the end of the school year, many schools begin preparing for the next school year by reviewing the contents of the incident report. The reviews are important to create a record of every incident that took place on campus and document every detail related to the incident. For this reason, many states require schools to review and develop an incident report at least once during the school year.
Unfortunately, many students do not remember everything they experienced on campus. The purpose of reviewing and creating an incident report is to create a record of every incident that took place that will be used in a court of law. Because most individuals do not recall every situation, it is important to document all situations. A well-planned incident report contains all information related to an incident that took place on the campus of the school.
However, there are some situations on the campus that are typical for many schools and are not usually covered in an incident report. Because of this, a well-prepared incident report must be written specifically for each situation. For example, when an employee of the school reported the problem, this information may be documented in the event report.
Another example of an incident report includes following up with those who are responsible for the incident. This can be as simple as following up with the parent or guardian of the student who was involved. The reason for writing the follow up letter is to verify what happened and document what happened to make sure the situation is properly documented.
The same goes for any other information that happened at the school. Some of the information may be very important, such as how the incident was handled, but other information is less important and may be recorded as well. In this case, the school will review the incident and make sure it is properly documented.
Asa result, it is important to document all information that may be important. Unfortunately, many students do not think about all of the events that take place on campus. Therefore, it is important to follow up with the appropriate parties to ensure all the details are properly documented.
Since so many details may be involved, the best idea is to prepare a timeline of events that are specific to the school’s incident report. The timeline should be a chronological listing of each incident. The first entry in the timeline should be the date of the incident itself.
At the bottom of the timeline should be the date and time, if possible, that each event occurred. These details can be very important. To be on the safe side, take steps to record all relevant information related to the incident.
