Post-Review Announcement
The New York State Education Department's Office of Special Education has completed a Special Education Programs and Services Focused Review in the Westhill School District during the 2016-2017 school year.  This review examined the district's compliance with selected federal and State laws and regulations governing the education of students with disabilities.
The review was conducted by the Special Education Quality Assurance (SEQA) Central Regional Office.  The review process involved a review of school records of a representative sample of students with disabilities, classroom visitations, interviews of parents and staff surveys.  Meetings of the committee on special education were also observed.
A copy of the report may be reviewed from the Superintendent's office, located at 400 Walberta Road, Syracuse, NY 13219.
