VADIR - Violent and Disruptive Incident Reporting
Each school district is required to submit Violent and Disruptive Incident Reports (VADIR) for each school building on an annual basis. Information on this page provides links to VADIR data reported by the schools, and provides resource documents to help school staff complete the necessary forms.
- Violent and Disruptive Incident Reports for incidents that occurred during the school year are due to the New York State Education Department on September 30 of the following school year. Data are to be reported via the BEDS Online Internet application. Updated submission deadlines, forms and directions can be found at:
