1 Comprehensive Special Education Plan Programs and Services for Students with Disabilities The Pupil Personnel Services of the Corning-Painted Post Area School District is dedicated to work collaboratively to provide our students with a quality education that addresses academic, physical, emotional needs, and social skills to enable them to become self-advocates and contributing members of society. The Corning-Painted Post Area School District has a continuing commitment to provide free and appropriate educational programs in the least restrictive environment for the students with disabilities that it serves. Definition of a Student with a Disability A student with a disability, as defined in section 4401(1) of Education Law, has not reached the age of 21 prior to September 1 st and is entitled to attend public schools pursuant to section 3202 of the Education Law and, because of mental, physical or emotional reasons, has been identified as having a disability and requires special services and programs approved by the department.

Visual Impairment - A student with a visual disability which, even with correction, adversely affects a st educational performance. The term includes both partially seeing and blind students.
3 Individualized Education Plan (IEP) The Individualized Education Plan (IEP) is a document that specifies the special education programs and services to be provided by the school district to meet the educational needs of a student with a disability. The IEP must include: o the individual needs of the student including academic, social, physical and management needs; o the disability classification of the student; o annual goals that are consistent with the student's needs; o For preschoolers with a disability and students who take the New Your State Alternate Assessment, short-term objectives necessary to meet the annual goals; o the recommended placement or program, including class size; o the extent to which the student will participate in general education; o projected dates for the initiation and reviews of special education and related services, and the amount of time the student will receive such services; o a description of any specialized equipment needed for the student to benefit from education; and o a list of testing accommodations and classroom modifications needed by the student. The program of each student with a disability is reviewed at least annually. A re-valuation is completed every three years to determine continuing eligibility for special education services. Least Restrictive Environment (LRE) Least restrictive environment means that placement of students with disabilities in special classes, separate schools, and other removal from the general educational environment occurs only when the nature of severity of the disability is such that, even with the use of supplementary aids and services, education cannot be satisfactorily achieved. The placement of an individual student with a disability in the least restrictive environment shall: o provide the special education services needed by the student; o provide for the education of the student with other students who do not have disabilities to the maximum extent appropriate to the needs of the student; and o be located as close as possible to the student s home. Committee on Special Education (CSE)/ Committee on Pre-school Special Education (CPSE) The CPSE/CSE is a multidisciplinary team consisting of a chairperson, special education teacher, school psychologist, general education teacher, parent, student where appropriate, and any other individuals with relevant information for determining a student s need for special education programs and services. The CPSE is responsible for children with disabilities ages 3-5. The CSE is responsible for children with disabilities ages This committee develops an Individual Education Plan to meet the needs of each student with a disability.
4 Program Descriptions Pre-School Special Education Evaluations and specially planned individual or group instructional services or programs are provided to eligible children, ages 2 ½ -5, who may have disabilities that affect their learning. The CPP School District Preschool Special Education Evaluation Team is a Steuben County New York State approved pre-school evaluation site.

Consultant Teacher (CT) Services Consultant Teacher services are provided by a certified special education teacher to students identified with a disability within the general education setting. The consultant teacher works with general education staff to modify and adapt the curriculum as necessary to meet individual student needs. The minimal amount of time for Consultant Teacher services is two hours weekly (this can be combined direct and indirect). Direct CT: The Special Education teacher provides support to the student in the general education classroom. Indirect CT: The Special Education teacher consults with general education staff to provide support. Integrated Co-Teaching Integrated Co-Teaching is provided by a certified special education teacher and a general education teacher to an integrated group of students in a general education classroom. Integrated Co-Teaching is provided in specific content areas as indicated on the IEP. Resource Room Resource Room services provide specially designed instruction to students identified with disabilities. This instruction is given by a certified special education teacher individually or in a small group setting for at least 3 hours a week. The maximum number of students in an instructional group may not exceed 5. Supplemental or specialized instruction is utilized to help students progress in the general education curriculum while addressing the individual needs as stated in the IEP. Adaptive Physical Education Adaptive physical education means a specially designed program of developmental activities suited to the interests, capabilities, and limitations of students with disabilities who may not safely or successfully engage in unrestricted participation and the activities of the regular physical education program. Students will receive adaptive physical education as indicated by their IEP.
5 Self-Contained Classes A self-contained class provides specially designed primary instruction to a group of students in a small student to teacher ratio. Students are grouped based on similarity of needs and receive their primary instruction separate from their nondisabled peers. As determined by the CSE, students may participate for part of their day in mainstreamed classes with their nondisabled peers. 15:1 Program The 15:1 program is designed for students in grades 2 through 12 who exhibit learning delays to the extent that they have not shown adequate progress in the general education setting. There may be up to 15 students in the class with one full time certified special education teacher.
