The Guidance for Violent and Disruptive Incident Reporting (VADIR) document retention has been modified and now states that VADIR and summary records, including copies of summary information submitted to the State Education Department must be maintained until the youngest person involved in the incident(s) is 27 years old. Summary records may need to be retained longer, even permanently, if they document school violence, or if a school has been designated a persistently dangerous school. School districts are encouraged to contact the New York State Archives for additional advice on document retention. More information is available on the web. Click on the NYSED logo above.
