New York State Education Department PROCEDURAL SAFEGUARDS NOTICE: Rights for Parents of Children with Disabilities, Ages 3-21

As a parent, you are a vital member of the Committee on Special Education (CSE) or Committee on Preschool Special Education (CPSE) in New York State.

The CSE/CPSE is responsible for developing recommendations for special education programs and services for your child. You must be given an opportunity to participate in the CSE/CPSE discussion and decision-making process about your child’s needs for special education.

The following link to the NY State Education Department (NYSED) website will provide information concerning procedural safeguards that are your legal rights under federal and State law - this includes the right to be informed about and involved in the special education process and to make sure that your child receives a free appropriate public education (FAPE).
