Actually academic progress can be reported as can enrollment. Grades are not supposed to be made public according to the Buckley Amendment.
Crime would not be covered since a criminal filing would be handled in court (it could be handled concurrently by the Dean of Students as well since it could violate the law and school policy--and no that is not double jeopardy). You can go to any school's "police" office and read the log of calls.
Private schools can have a slightly different set of criteria.
There is also the issue of how HIPPA affects all this. In Colorado, EMTs will not tell the police where they are taking accident victims. Screwy and probably an overreaction.
