BEACON 3.0 is scheduled to be redeployed on August 30, 2010. All BEACON 2.0 data will be converted to BEACON 3.0 over the weekend of August 27, 2010. Statewide training for all BEACON 3.0 users was conducted in April, May and June. To enhance training, BEACON 3.0 Production has been available between the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. daily, for all staff to complete practice scenarios.

On Wednesday, August 18, 2010, a statewide stress test was conducted of BEACON 3.0. All users were asked to close out of BEACON 2.0 and log into BEACON 3.0. Field staff was instructed to complete application, recertification and case maintenance activities. Central Office staff was instructed to complete activities associated with their job functions.
