Special Education School Improvement Support (SESIS)

SESIS provides targeted support and technical assistance as it relates to educational programs and academic performance of students with disabilities.  Districts in need have been identified by NYSED based on State Performance targets and district accountability data.  SESIS works collaboratively with local school administrators and teachers to assess their staff development needs and develop and/or align programs to meet the needs of students with disabilities.  The focus of SESIS is to provide technical assistance that will result in system wide school improvement.
