CHANGES IN NYS SPECIAL EDUCATION LAW:
Section 4402 of the Education Law has been amended by adding a new subdivision, effective July 1, 2015, requiring public schools to notify every parent of their rights regarding referral and evaluation of their child for the purposes of special education services or programs upon their child’s enrollment in public school. The field advisory provides information on this change which includes the legal citation(s), a summary of the changes, an effective date, and the corresponding statutory language.
