VADIR Bits and Pieces

Hello out there in VADIR land! Happy "back to school."

Question and Answers: Thanks to all of you who came out to the ten regional sessions. We have collected all of the questions that were asked at each session and have submitted them to NYSED. The team up there is reviewing them so that they can be used to inform the Question and Answer Document to provide you with extra guidance. The Q&A Document is available here.
VADIR Due Date: September 30 is the deadline for submitting VADIR data.

Persistently Dangerous Schools List: Congratulations to those schools who worked hard last school year to be removed from the list. If you are looking for information about this year's list of schools, go here.

Looking Ahead to Next Year: NYSED is asking for feedback from you regarding the possibility of adding "Suicide" to the VADIR system. They want to know if you think it should be a category, and if so, whether it should be weighted. Post your comments on here on the VADIR Blog - that's what it's here for!

We're on Facebook! Check us out and become a fan. Here we are - come and be social with us!

Have a good (and safe) 2009-10 school year.

Stay safe,

thanks for the update, looks like you had alot of "road time" this summer. So any future trainings coming up for what to do with all that data we collected and turned in last month?
