Committees on Special Education

Committees on Preschool Special Education

The Committee on Preschool Special Education (CPSE) is responsible for coordinating the special education process for preschool children ages three to five.

CPSEs work with families in the district where a family lives, regardless of where children receive services or go to preschool. To find your home district, search your address in Find a School.

There are 10 CPSEs in different areas of the city. Each CPSE is part of a larger Committee on Special Education (CSE) office. A chairperson oversees the office, including the CPSE in it.

Committees on Special Education

Committees on Special Education (CSEs) coordinate and carry out the special education process for students who are not enrolled in DOE schools. This includes:

  • Students attending a private, parochial, charter, State Supported or State Approved Non-Public school     
  • Students attending non-public schools outside New York City and New York State
  • Students who receive home or hospital instruction as their placement on their IEP (this does not include students on temporary home instruction, as these students are expected to return to their prior school)
  • Students who are being home-schooled
  • Students who are non-attending

There are 10 CSEs. If your child is enrolled in school, your CSE is the one in the same geographical district as that school. To find that district, look up your school’s address in Find a School.
