District 75

Dear Friends,

Welcome to our UFT District 75 (citywide special education) webpage. Here you will find the latest information about our union and our district. The purpose of this webpage is to provide our members access to information that is relevant to their work with students with special needs. In addition, anyone with an interest in our district or special education may find it useful.

In our district our members believe that “all children can learn.” Our work is challenging, but purposeful.  With safe and supported classrooms, our members can help all of our students realize their potential. We are here to make this happen by ensuring that your contractual rights are protected.

If there is anything that we can do for you, feel free to reach our office by calling 212-598-7708 or contact me at DDoorga@uft.org. We have staff on hand ready to answer your questions on almost everything related to District 75!

At Your Service,

David Doorga
District 75 Representative
