Pascack Valley Superintendent Presents Violence and Vandalism Report

The regular report found there were a total of 19 incidents in the district over the course of six months.

Pascack Valley Regional Schools Superintendent P. Erik Gundersen presented the district's vandalism and violence report during the Board of Education meeting this week.

School officials are required by state law to present the reports.

Between January and June of last year, there were a total of 19 incidents in the district, including 15 of violence, one of vandalism and three of substance abuse, according to Gundersen.

The incidents resulted in two calls to local police, one in-school suspension and seven out-of-school suspensions.

Board member James Hall thanked the district's staff and students for keeping the number of vandalism incidents "ridiculously small."

"It's remarkable how little vandalism we have to deal with," Hall said.

The next Pascack Valley Regional Board of Education meeting is scheduled for February 4.
