Training for Violent and Disruptive Incident Reporting (VADIR): Training will be provided to all public school districts, BOCES and charter schools this summer on VADIR. This training will assist schools with the legal requirements on what and how to report violent and disruptive incidents. Each public school district, BOCES and charter school will be asked to send a team of four representatives to one of the day-long regional training sessions that will be scheduled in August. The teams should include the superintendent or designee, a building principal representative, a representative of the teachers’ union, and a person with primary responsibility for accurate completion of VADIR forms.
Looking forward to seeing you all there!
