Blueprint for Improved Results for Students with Disabilities
Released by the New York State Education Department (NYSED), the Blueprint was designed to "ensure that students with disabilities have the opportunities to benefit from high quality instruction, to reach the same standards as all students, and to leave students prepared to successfully transition to post-school learning, living, and employment."
History of the RSE-TASC
The RSE-TASC at Eastern Suffolk BOCES is located at the Islip Office Center in Oakdale, NY. Formerly known as the Special Education Training and Resource Center (SETRC), the new RSE-TASC subsumed networks including the Transition Coordination Site and Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) Technical Assistance/Training Site back in 2009. In doing so, the RSE-TASC vastly expanded services to a broader constituency throughout Long Island. It established a new approach for the provision of special education technical assistance and professional development to schools.
