Capital District Task Force

The Special Education Task Force is comprised of over 200 parent advocates, school district staff, attorneys and other individuals who specialize in Special Education Law, and work collaboratively to ensure that children with disabilities are educated in the least restrictive setting and receive a free and appropriate education. 

The Capital District Special Education Task Force includes Albany, Columbia, Greene, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Schoharie, Schenectady, and Warren.

The Capital District Special Education Task Force has an online mail list to share information about upcoming events and to allow  Executive Councilmembers to share information with other Task Force members. In an effort to avoid overwhelming your inbox, use of the mail list is limited to notifications of task force events and cannot be used for other purposes.  To join the Capital District mail list, subscribe here and choose “Capital.District.Special.Ed.Task.Force” on the dropdown menu.  You will then receive an email request to confirm your subscription by following the link provided in the email.  It's as easy as that!  

You may also subscribe to any or all of the other regional Special Ed Task Force lists, but you will need to do so one at a time.
