The new guidance from NYSED is available now. Please click on the title of this entry to head straight to the new glossary. Why? Because it's new!
Especially note the changes to Category 2.2 - Other Sexual Offenses where they have provided additional information related to "mooning" incidents. Those incidents may now be reported either as Category 10 - Intimidation, Harrassment, Menacing or Bullying or as Category 20 - Other Disruptive Incidents depending on the circumstances of the actual incident.
Also, Category 17 has been further expanded. Category 17 is Weapons Possession Only; 17.1 covers weapons confiscated upon entry to the building by scanning; and 17. 2 is now Weapons Found Under Other Circumstances.
Also, according to NYSED "as of October 11, 2007 the VADIR Questions and Answers document is being updated. This document will be posted as soon as it becomes final." So look for the new Q&A soon.
Also, oh so much news, keep checking back because the VADIR reporting due date will also be announced at the NYSED website soon.
