RE: [nyceducationnews] Middle School CTT Placements
Patricia, will send to CECD2 and PC. Best regards,
PLEASE FORWARD THIS MESSAGE WIDELY TO OTHER NYC PUBLIC SCHOOL PARENT LISTSERVS
Middle school placement letters were sent out early this week. Last year at this time, the DOE's Office of Student Enrollment and Placement (OSEPO) royally botched up the placement of 5th grade CTT students in middle schools in so-called choice districts (e.g., Districts 2, 15, etc.) I would be interested in hearing from any parents of CTT students from any district who may be concerned or displeased about the school placement that their child has received. I will treat any information you share with me in the strictest confidence.

- Thanks, Andrea. However, I think your experience in District 31 differs somewhat from those of us in so-called choice districts (such as District 15 where my LD son receiving CTT & related services attends). Here we have no zoned middle schools -- all are district-wide. Thus CTT 5th graders are permitted to apply to only those middle schools that offer CTT. Otherwise, their IEPs need to be amended prior to the middle school application process begins to indicate a recommendation of general education with academic management needs and accommodations specified as well as related services, if required.On Jun 3, 2009, at 12:51 PM, Andrea Anna Lella wrote:
