No matter the size of your district, special education is a key component in your curriculum and budget.  There are numerous legal restrictions, as well as procedures that districts must follow.

On May 24 at 4:30 p.m. “Conversations on New Jersey Education,” NJSBA’s program broadcast over, featured a discussion on special education. Ray Pinney, NJSBA director of member engagement and host of the program, spoke with Dr. Gerry Crisonino, who is both the director of special education for the School District of Jersey City and a school board member in Union County; and Nathanya Simon, senior partner with the law firm of Schwartz, Simon, Edelstein & Celso.
