Contract 2023: Special education

School-based Special Education Committees

Each school will have a special education committee selected by the UFT chapter leader. The committee will meet with the principal in the spring and the fall and as needed to discuss special education compliance issues, including teacher and paraprofessional programming, with the goal of resolving issues at the school level. Go to the District 75 section of Contract at a Glance to see additional topics tackled by the special education committee at District 75 schools.


The UFT and the DOE will create a training session on special education rules and regulations that all staff will attend each fall, before or on Election Day. The training will be in person and held at a time when students are not in attendance. If an employee is not available, there will be a self-paced training session.
