COUNCIL MEMBER BRAD LANDER REMINDS PARENTS TO FILL OUT ONLINE FORM TO AVOID LOSING "RELATED SERVICES" FOR SPECIAL EDUCATION

Parents of children that are enrolled in non-public schools in New York City are required to fill out a form every year in order to guarantee that their child is eligible to receive special education services at their school. While the Department of Education usually mails out this form, the Coronavirus pandemic has affected this practice, and the form was sent out by email instead of postal mail this year.

 

However, many parents in New York City, including those in the Orthodox Community, may not have access to email. Other busy parents might overlook or fail to recognize the importance of the email and miss a chance to fill out this important form.

 

“The Covid-19 pandemic has affected everyone in ways small and large, but it is important to ensure that children will not lose their access to special education services next year. And we do not want children who's parents may not have access to email to be put at a disadvantage. While life might have moved online during this pandemic, not everyone has the same abilities and opportunities to be a part of this new virtual world," said Councilman Brad Lander

 

In order to ensure that each child enrolled in a non-public school still has access to their special education services including OT, PT, Speech, SEIT, SETTS, please visit https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=tyxJGEXvYUWFcQxC5fesB4VquwK_6j1Hl0-7ninQPzlUMUZRRVQxUjhCVzg3NEZGUlhNVTkzQ05EWi4u

to submit out the required form of the Board of Education, and to ensure that your child’s special education services are continued. More information can be found on the website of the NYC department of education, at
