Questions about the Process?
Based on student needs and progress, the IEP must be reviewed and updated once yearly at an Annual Review meeting. A parent may request a reevaluation – the CSE must process the request immediately. A copy of the request shall be forwarded to the building administrator within 5 days of its receipt by the CSE chairperson. A reevaluation is required: ? every three years unless both parent and district agree that it is not necessary ? whenever additional evaluation(s) are required ? whenever declassification is considered ? not more than once per year A parent can revoke the consent for Special Education Services at any time by submitting a written request to Central CSE 33 Ash St. Buffalo, NY 14204
Your child should keep a copy of his/her IEP and immediately share it with his/her assigned college advisor. He/she should contact the Disability Support Services office at the college. The college is not required to implement the IEP, but can make use of it as a reference to accommodate your child’s needs to the fullest extent possible. It is at this time that your child must fully understand the concept of “self-advocacy”, i.e. being able to discuss their disability and needs with support staff so that reasonable accommodations can be provided.
You may request information on obtaining a parent advocate or knowledgeable parents to help you. For information contact: ? Coordinator for Parent Services at Central CSE 816-4747 ? Parent Network of WNY 332-4170
Preschool special education programs and services are available. Your child is entitled to a free educational evaluation to determine if an educational disability exists and a need for such services is, therefore, required. Contact: Committee on Preschool Special Education (CPSE) Office Room 210 33 Ash St. Buffalo, NY 14204 716-816-4713
As a first step you can express your disagreement by appealing the CSE recommendations through an Appeal Process. Make a written request for a District Level Appeal to: Central CSE District Appeal Room 204 33 Ash St. Buffalo, NY 14204 For additional information regarding your Parental Rights, please reference the Procedural Safeguards notice provided to you by Central CSE.

Your child is eligible for special education services if attending a charter or non-public school. These schools, however, do not provide a full continuum of special education services, and therefore are not always able to fully implement a student’s IEP. At particular schools the services are provided by the Buffalo School District. It is the responsibility of the Buffalo School District Committee on Special Education to determine if your child is eligible for special education services. You should contact: ? The Main Office or Coordinator for Special Education at your child’s school. ? You may also contact Central CSE at 33 Ash St, Buffalo, NY, 14204, Room 203; or call 716-816-4746.
