Event Details

The New Jersey School Boards Association’s Special Education Task Force will present its final report. The study identified strategies that would enable our schools to control special education costs while still meeting their obligation to provide a free and appropriate public education to all students. This study was a key initiative of NJSBA Executive Director Dr. Lawrence S. Feinsod

The event will include a presentation on the task force’s findings and recommendations by its chairman, Dr. Gerald J. Vernotica, followed by a panel discussion with members of the study group.

The task force spent over a year, consulting with 25 experts in special education, including representatives of higher education, key personnel in the U.S. and New Jersey Departments of Education, and special education advocates and practitioners. It surveyed the literature on the delivery and financing of special education services, and explored options that focus on academic achievement. The final report includes 20 recommendations.

The task force chairman, Dr. Vernotica, is an associate professor at Montclair State University and a former assistant commissioner of education, executive county superintendent, district superintendent, principal, teacher, and director of special services. The task force included nine local school board members and school administrators.
