Instructions for Completing PD-1A/4A To be Completed by All BOCES

General Directions

  • Report the unduplicated count of preschool and school-age students with disabilities provided special education programs or services by this BOCES on December 1, 2004. Wherever students are to be reported by age, please report age as of December 1, 2004.

  • Preschool students with disabilities, provided special education services pursuant to Section 4410 of the Education Law, should be included in Table 1 of this report only.

  • For purposes of this report, students provided transportation or evaluation services only are not to be included.

  • Report data in Tables 2 and 3 for all school-age students with disabilities provided special education programs/services regardless of the amount of special education services provided. All school-age students are to be reported in either Table 2 or Table 3, but not in both (count each student as one (1)). Report school-age students receiving special class services only or special class services and other educational services in Table 2 only. Report students receiving other special education services only (e.g., related services, resource room programs, and consultant teacher services) in Table 3 only.

  • Report school-age students provided services in more than one location in the type of building/facility they attend for the majority of the time they receive BOCES special education programs/services.

  • Report school-age students provided services in two locations, each for 50 percent of the school day, in the numerically lower line number. For example, a school-age student provided services by BOCES in a public school building that is also attended by non-disabled students (Line 01) for 50 percent of the school day and in a building attended by students with disabilities only (Line 03) for 50 percent of the school day, should be reported in Line 01.

  • Please use the definitions below to assist you in determining the most appropriate race/ethnicity category for reporting students in Tables 2, 3, and 4. Also, please report the race/ethnicity of students with disabilities consistently with how it is reported by their districts of residence on all Department data collection instruments.

American Indian/Alaskan Native: A person having origins in any of the original peoples of North and South America (including Central America) and who maintains tribal affiliation or community attachment.
Asian or Pacific Islander: A person having origins in any of the original peoples of the Far East, Southeast Asia, the Indian subcontinent, or the Pacific Islands, including, for example, Cambodia, China, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Pakistan, the Philippine Islands, Thailand, and Vietnam. The Pacific Islands include Hawaii, Guam, and Samoa.
Black or African American (not Hispanic): A person having origins in any of the Black racial groups of Africa.
Hispanic or Latino: A person of Cuban, Mexican, Puerto Rican, South or Central American, or other Spanish culture or origin, regardless of race.
White (not Hispanic): A person having origins in any of the original peoples of Europe, the Middle East, or North Africa.

Directions for Table 1: If this BOCES does not operate an approved preschool special education program, place a check in question #1, and skip question #2. If this BOCES operates an approved preschool special education program, in question 2, provide the number of preschool students with disabilities provided special education programs or services on December 1, 2004. Such services may include special class, SEIT, and/or related services that are provided pursuant to Section 4410 of the Education Law. Do not count preschool students who receive evaluation services only. Also, please note that for students receiving itinerant services and/or related services from more than one approved preschool special education program, only the program that provides itinerant services or is designated by the CPSE to coordinate all related services must count the students in this report.

Directions for Table 2 (School-age Students Provided Special Class Programs by BOCES by Race/Ethnicity): In Columns A-E, provide a count of school-age students with disabilities, by race/ethnicity, provided any configuration of special class services (see NYCRR 200.6(g)(4)(i)(ii) and (iii)). Examples of special class configurations include: 15 students to 1 teacher (15:1), 12 students to 1 teacher plus one supplementary school personnel (12:1+1); 8 students to 1 teacher plus one supplementary school personnel (8:1+1), 6 students to 1 teacher plus one supplementary school personnel (6:1+1) and 12 students to 1 teacher plus a ratio of 1 supplementary school personnel for every three students (12:1+3:1). In Column F, provide the total number of such students. Students provided other special education programs or services in addition to special class programs should also be included in this table. Also, students should be included in this table regardless of the amount of time they receive special class programs.

Directions for Table 3 (School-age Students Provided Educational Services Other Than Special Class Programs by BOCES): In Columns A-E, provide a count of students with disabilities, by race/ethnicity, who are not provided special class services but are provided other special education services by BOCES (e.g., special education related services, resource room programs and, consultant teacher services). Include all school-age students with disabilities to whom the BOCES provides special education services other than special class programs, regardless of where such services are provided and regardless of the amount of such services. Students receiving both special class services as well as other special education services should be reported in Table 2 only. In Column F, provide the total number of such students.

Directions for Table 4: Report the race/ethnicity of school-age students with disabilities who are ages 14-21 as of December 1, 2004. In Line 1, report race/ethnicity of students receiving special class programs and in Line 2, report the race/ethnicity of students receiving special education services other than special class programs.

Additional Information for Line 2 of Tables 2 and 3:

Include in these lines students who receive their related academic instruction in a community setting such as a class operated by BOCES at a place of employment and are involved in supported employment/job coaching experiences in the community for the remainder of the day. In order to be included in Line 2, such students must be provided opportunities to interact with non-disabled individuals other than non-disabled individuals who provide services to them. (Students receiving special class programs as well as supported employment/job coaching should be reported in Table 2 only. Students receiving employment/job coaching only should be reported in Table 3 only.)
