News from NYSED
  • The School Food Service Equipment Grant is intended to improve the infrastructure of the NSLP. This will be achieved by providing the opportunity for schools to purchase equipment to serve healthier meals that meet the updated meal patterns, improve the overall quality of meals, improve efficiency of production and service and expand participation.

  • The New York State Education Department (NYSED) Office of Special Education is seeking proposals for the establishment of a New York City (NYC) Preschool Provider Bilingual/English as a New Language Professional Development Center (Preschool Bilingual/ENL PDC). The purpose of the Preschool Bilingual/ENL PDC will be to provide in-service training which section 4410 preschool special education programs can include in their Interim Alternative Bilingual Placement (IABP) plans so they can continue enrolling English language learners (ELLs) with disabilities. The project is intended to increase the capacity of preschool providers in NYC to serve preschool students with disabilities who are ELLs by providing professional development to administrators, paraprofessionals1, teachers and related service providers employed by approved preschool programs on topics including, but not limited to, bilingual and ENL methodology, cultural and linguistic diversity and the integration of bilingual programming throughout a school. The Preschool Bilingual/ENL PDC will also develop procedures to ensure that the paraprofessionals and professionals participating in the above training have information on tuition assistance provided by the Intensive Teacher Institute in Bilingual Special Education (ITI-BSE) and registered ITI-BSE programs leading to a bilingual extension or certification in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) or Teaching Students with Disabilities from Birth to Grade 2 (TSWD).
