We at the North Colonie Special Education Parent
Teacher Association (Special Ed PTA) want to remind parents of
children with an IEP (Individualized Education Program) that a new
format will be
applicable for IEPs for the next school year (2011-2012).
New York State now requires all districts in the
State to use one standard format. The format is different from what
our District has used in the past. However, the content required in
the IEP remains the same. As the arrangement of the content is
different, if you cannot locate something on the new form, please
inquire with your child’s special education teacher.
If you want to view the form required by the
State Education Department, you can go to the website and see not
only the form but also other information concerning the new format
We do have a parent forum at the end of our
meetings for general discussion if you wish to comment; our last
three meetings of the year are: April 12, May 10 and June 14 at the
2nd floor of Shaker Junior High School in the multi-purpose room.
All meetings begin at 7:00 p.m.
Best Wishes from your Executive Board,
David Cohen – President
Rena Hurley – Vice President
Kelly Curro – Secretary
Jim Kresge – Treasurer
