The New York State Education Department (NYSED), P-12: Office of Special Education funds the Technical Assistance Center on Disproportionality (TAC-D) at New York University Metro Center. Through this project, NYSED offers professional development and technical assistance to assist school districts to develop culturally responsive and appropriate instructional environments, instruction and behavioral practices to promote equity ยท for all students and to prevent . inappropriate identification, classification, placement and disciplinary actions based on race/ethnicity for students with disabilities.

Each year, through its contract with NYSED, TAC-D hosts a Summer Institute. TAC-D's 2015 Summer Institute - Creating Safe and Caring Schools: Improving School Discipline through Equitable and Responsive Practices is scheduled for May 22, 2015. This Institute will provide school district staff, researchers, and technical assistance providers with an opportunity to address methods of decreasing disproportionality in schools. The goal for the day is to provide attendees with strategies, tools, research, and information that they can bring back to their colleagues and use in meaningful ways to improve the policies, practices, and beliefs in their districts and
schools.
