Committee on Special Education
The Committee on Special Education (CSE) identifies students who qualify for special education services. Based on medical, educational, social and developmental data, and a battery of psychoeducational tests administered either by the school or a private psychologist, the CSE determines whether or not a student has a disability.
Once it has been determined that a student is in need of Special Education Services, the Committee develops an Individualized Educational Plan that includes goals and objectives to address educational, social, emotional and behavioral needs. Thereafter, each year, at the Annual Review, the Committee, with input from the Special Education Teacher, the child’s dean, a general education teacher, and the child’s parents, assesses the student’s progress, makes recommendations for program changes, and reviews the goals and objectives stated in the IEP. Once a student has been classified, the student is placed in an appropriate program and provided with services stipulated in his/her IEP.
