Implement Chapter 408 Requirements
Start Date: 9/6/2017
End Date: 9/6/2017
Event Description:
As in previous years, Chapter 408 of the New York State Education law mandates that all professionals, who provide services or supports to students with IEPs, are duly informed of their specific roles and responsibilities prior to implementing those services. This responsibility extends to all students with IEPs in the school, including preschool students with IEPs. In accordance with Chapter 408, your school must complete the following requirements by September 6:

  • Provide all teachers, related-service providers, and other service providers who are responsible for implementing the student's IEP with a copy of or electronic access to the IEP prior to the initiation of services.
  • Select a designee and ensure that the designee meets with each teacher and provider prior to initiation of services to discuss the teacher or provider's role in implementing the student's IEP.

You must take these steps throughout the school year each time a new IEP is developed or amended or a new student with an IEP enrolls in your school, prior to providing program and/or services to any student with an IEP. For compliance purposes, you must also maintain an ongoing record of your school's completed Chapter 408 implementation forms, which must be kept confidential in a secure, locked area; you may use these sample verification forms (scroll down to the bottom of the page) for this purpose. These forms and more information about Chapter 408 requirements, including a memo to principals that describes the steps outlined above in more detail, are available on the Special Populations Intranet page.

For questions, contact your FSC administrator for special education (ASE).
