2023 Diamond Sponsor 

Welcome to NYCASE!

Dear Members,

In an effort to support our membership NYCASE continues to post the most recent Federal and State updates to Special Education and Section 504 on our website. We are also continuing to provide a series of virtual update professional development opportunities throughout the year. It is our desire that the NYCASE website be your single point of entry to access updates and resources without having to scroll through an endless sea of e-mails. Now that we have transitioned to our new website, we have migrated some of these content areas to the "Member's Only" section. This will allow us to focus our efforts on the members of our organization and to continue to provide the high quality supports that our membership has come to rely on.      
It was great to see so many of you at the 2023 Summer Institute in Syracuse this July. Please mark your calendars for July 15-17, 2024 for the 22nd Summer Institute! We will be at the Crowne Plaza/Desmond Hotel in Albany N.Y.
