A school-based complaint is an offense that occurs on school grounds, school property (buses, etc.), at a school bus stop, or at an off-campus school-sanctioned event (field trips, athletic competitions, etc.) or whose victim is a school (i.e. false bomb report). "School" includes any public or private institution providing elementary (K-8), secondary (9-12), or post-secondary (community college, trade school, college, etc.) education, but excludes home schools, preschools, and day cares.
A non-school based complaint is an offense that did not occur on school grounds, school property, at a school bus stop, or at an off-campus school-sanctioned event. A school- a public or private institution providing elementary, secondary, or post-secondary education- cannot be the victim of a non-school based offense.
