This New York report complies with the requirements that states document performance of educational and vocational services funded under the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. The report is based on New York's strategic plan of goals and objectives and presents data and analyses which indicate current status and trends. Positive trends include: more inclusion of students in general education programs; high participation and improved performance of students with disabilities in state assessments; improving percentages of students with disabilities who graduate; and an increasing percentage of students with disabilities who enroll in higher education. Trends indicating areas of need include improved student proficiency in reading and mathematics, and the need to increase access to Regents-level instruction and examinations. Individual sections of the report present tables, graphs, and analysis concerning: (1) the early intervention program, (2) the preschool grant program, (3) the state grant program, (4) stage agency and state-operated/supported programs, (5) the vocational rehabilitation program, and (6) the strategic plan. Six appendices provide detailed data for individual school districts concerning students exiting special education, student participation in state assessments, and student numbers and disability classifications as well as a glossary of abbreviations and terms.
