Taylor's Law Report




Taylor's Law links a student's behavior in school to their ability to obtain a driving permit or license. Students who are 13 years and older accumulate points for disruptive behavior in school. These points are used to determine the age of eligibility for a student to apply to the Department of Public Safety for any license required by the state for the operation of a motor vehicle or vessel. This report provides a list of students with the number of points they have received based on state infractions, as well as the age and date of eligibility based on those points. 

Reporting period: As needed


Selection Criteria

  • The incident must have occurred on campus.

  • The incident behavior must involve a firearm offense or the incident action must involve a suspension or expulsion.

    • If the action is a suspension, the Action Duration Date Range must be populated.

  • Points accumulate per school term from all schools in which the student was enrolled between ages 13 to 19. 

Grace Period Calculation:
