Arranging SETSS services
As reflected in the DOE's Special Education Standard Operating Procedures Manual under the heading "Arranging SETSS and ICT," for continuing students, schools will make best efforts to provide recommended SETSS services on the first scheduled date of attendance of the new school year. For continuing students or students with placements deferred to the start of the school year in September, schools will identify and assign a DOE SETSS teacher within two school days of the start of the school. During the school year, schools will identify and assign a DOE SETSS teacher within 2 school days of receipt of parental consent for initial provision of services.
If a DOE teacher is not available, an authorization for SETSS Services (“P-4”) should be provided to the parent by the FSC within an additional 5 school days. The P-4 sets forth the frequency and duration of services, and includes instructions on how to invoke the P-4 and information on whom to contact at the DOE for assistance. The parent will be provided with information on available providers.
