NYSED Seeking Family Input Regarding Special Education ServicesThe New York State Education Department is currently seeking family engagement to help improve outcomes for students with disabilities in New York State.
Feedback from parents, school administrators, educators, advocacy organizations, community members and other stakeholders will be used to guide the State Performance Plan, which will be in effect through 2025. This plan will include 17 indicators that measure child and family outcomes, as well as compliance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.
Families are invited to share their input by participating in online surveys, as well as registering to attend virtual meetings that will be held in November 2021.
To learn more about how to register for the virtual stakeholder meetings, please click here. Registration is required by October 29th. Surveys on each of the 17 topics (graduation rates, drop out rates, assessment, suspension and more) are available within the tabs linked on the State Performance Plan page.
We encourage all families to share their feedback! If you have any questions about the plan or related activities, please contact NYSPP@nysed.gov.
