NY State Education Department
Announcement of Schoolwide Review
The New York State Education Department’s (NYSED) Office of Special Education (OSE) initiated a Special Education Quality Assurance (SEQA) Comprehensive Review of State Performance Plan Indicator 4 A/B. William A. Morris Intermediate School 61 is part of the sample from the New York City School District 31, and as such, is the focus of a review due to three or more consecutive years of data that indicate a significant discrepancy in the rates of long-term suspensions of students with disabilities under the State Performance Plan Indicator 4A and/or disproportionality in the rates of long-term suspensions of students with disabilities by race/ethnicity under the State Performance Plan Indicator 4B. The purpose of this review is to assess the district’s compliance with selected federal and state laws and regulations governing the education of students with disabilities during the 2011-2012 school year, as well as the current academic year.
The review will be conducted by OSE’s SEQA Office and will include representatives from the school district. The review will involve a review of school records of selected students with disabilities, classroom visitations and staff interviews. In addition, district manifestation determination team meetings may be observed. Further information may be obtained by contacting the SEQA Office in your region and/or contacting your school district.
