NORTHPORT – EAST NORTHPORT UFSD

NYSED NOTICE OF COMPLIANCE (February 21, 2018)

RESPONSE TO CAP (CORRECTIVE ACTION PLAN) DATED May 3, 2017

 

The NYS State Education Department (NYSED) has completed their recent review of the district’s Individual Education Plans (IEPs) and Behavior Intervention Plans (BIPs), verifying the District’s full compliance with the CAP (Corrective Action Plan) issued by NYSED on May 3, 2017.  A formal “Notice of Compliance” and a “Final Status Report” were received by Superintendent Banzer on February 21, 2018.

 

The Department of Special Education worked very hard over the last year to align district practices with State expectations and insure compliance in all areas of concern.  District efforts, including extensive professional development and collaborative review, focused on the following areas:

* Revision of certain Individualized Education Program (IEP)goals, present levels of performance, and needs statements

* Elimination of Special Class Study Skills as a special education program

* Specific identification of program locations, documentation of when a student is not participating in general education, and revision of related services start dates on IEPs

* Documentation of positive behavioral interventions, baseline measures, and schedules to collect data on Behavior Intervention Plans (BIPs)

 

The State Education Department’s CAP review focused on these areas of concern and found that the district has complied in full with the specified State requirements.  The “February 21, 2018 Compliance Assurance Plan Status Report” received from the NYSED Office of Special Education documents the “Accepted Date” for each item.

 

The Special Education Department realizes that this is just one step toward lasting compliance and adherence to best practices.  Professional collaboration and development efforts are ongoing and concentration on the areas identified by the State will continue to be a primary focus for administration, faculty and staff both now and in the future.

 

Christina Pulaski, Director of Special Education
