PD-2 – In-State and Out-of-State Approved Private Schools, and State-Operated and State-Supported Schools Report: Number of Preschool and School-age Students with Disabilities Provided Special Education on December 1, 2006.
Important: Due Date between December 1 and December 15, 2006.
Attached is a PD-2 form to be used to report the count of preschool and school-age students with disabilities provided special education programs and/or services on December 1, 2006. Preschool students with disabilities may be counted if they are provided special education services by your school pursuant to section 4410 or 4201 of the Education Law. School-age students with disabilities may be counted if they are placed in your school by public school districts or by Commissioner’s appointments. Out-of-State approved private schools are to report the number of New York State students placed in the school by New York State school districts or by New York State courts or other agencies. All schools submitting this report must be either schools that are approved for educating students with disabilities or are State-operated or State-supported schools. This report is due in the State Education Department between December 1 and December 15, 2006 and should be submitted to:
New York State Education Department
Office of Vocational and Educational Services for Individuals with Disabilities
Strategic Evaluation Data Collection, Analysis and Reporting
Room 1613, One Commerce Plaza
Albany, New York 12234
To be counted in this report, each student with a disability, on December 1, 2006, must meet the following criteria:
Federal law and regulation require that State and local education agencies ensure an unduplicated count of students with disabilities. Before submitting the PD-2 report, please complete local verification procedures to ensure that each student is counted only once. Such verification procedures may include visual scans, computer scans or other methods; and are especially important for schools having several school buildings and for students receiving multiple special education programs and/or services.
The New York State Education Department (SED) will confirm the accuracy of information included in this report as part of the program review process, or as is otherwise indicated. To facilitate such review for your school, please maintain a list (hard copy or other readily retrievable format) of all students included in this child count until June 30, 2014. Upon completing local verification procedures, if it is determined that one or more counts are incorrect, a revised child count (i.e., PD-2 form) must be submitted to SED.
As compared to the PD-2 form for 2005-2006, the PD-2 for 2006-2007 is identical.
A SEDCAR-1 (Approved Special Education Program Request for IDEA Vendor Funding) form must be completed by all approved private schools, and State-supported schools for preschool and school-age students with disabilities. This form must also be submitted by all out-of-State approved private schools on behalf of all preschool and school-age students with disabilities who are placed in such schools by New York State school districts or by New York State courts or other agencies. In order to receive IDEA vendor funding under Section 611 and 619 for the 2007-2008 year, a SEDCAR-1 form must be submitted to each school district by March 2, 2007. The form must be sent to each district placing one or more students in your program on December 1, 2006. For students with disabilities placed by New York State courts and other agencies in out-of-State approved schools, the SEDCAR-1 form must be submitted to the school district in which such students resided at the time they were placed in the out-of-State schools by the courts or other agencies.
For your information, the data collected through the PD forms are used in the following reports and activities:
