An elected body of volunteer parent members whose children have Individualized Education Programs (IEPs), two members appointed by the public advocate and, a student member.
What We Do
We advocate on behalf of ALL NYC students who have IEPs and advise the NYC Department of Education on instructional policies and school issues involving students with disabilities.
We hold monthly public meetings with members of the Division of Special Instruction and Student Support, other stakeholders and community resources, that:
•Provide an open forum for the voicing and discussion of parent concerns.
•Provide information, with presentations that focus on specific issues facing NYC students with IEPs. Past topics have included: Bussing, Creating the IEP, Turning 5, IEPs and the Common Core, and Transitioning to high school.
•Offers parents an opportunity to discuss their specific cases with executive members of the Division of Special Instruction and Student Support
