The CSE and CPSE meet annually to review each student's strengths, needs, goals, and program. The CSE or CPSE may be requested to convene at other times to amend or modify the IEP as needed. At the meetings, new goals are established and programs and services are determined. The Baldwinsville Special Education Department employs special education teachers, teaching assistants, job coaches and various related service providers. All staff receives ongoing professional development to assure that our students receive a quality and up-to-date education.
The district provides a Continuum of Services to meet the needs of the students. For those students who require more assistance, their services could be consultant teacher, resource room support, integrated co-teaching, or special classes. It is the responsibility of the CSE to discuss the student's present strengths and needs and determine the appropriate program on an individual basis. The programs vary by level based on the curriculum and the requirements of the present population. The district provides a free and appropriate public education to students with disabilities, in the least restrictive environment, in accordance with part 200 of Commissioner's Regulations, the Individuals with Disabilities Act.
