October 2017 Update: 

The New York State Education Department's Office of Special Education has initiated a Special Education Programs and Services Focused Review in the Amityville Union School Free School District for the 2017-2018 school year. The purpose of this review is to assess the district's compliance with selected federal and State laws and regulations governing the education of students with disabilities. This review is regularly conducted in school districts throughout New York State in order to assist districts in aligning their special education policies, practices, and procedures with federal and State standards. The review will be conducted by the Special Education Quality Assurance (SEQA) Long Island Regional Office. The review process will involve a review of school records of a representative sample of students with disabilities, classroom visitations and surveys. In addition, meetings of the committee on special education will be observed. Further information may be obtained by contacting the SEQA Long Island Regional Office at (631) 952-3352 and/or by contracting Mr. Peter Paternostro, Administrator for Pupil Personnel Services for the Amityville Union Free School District at (631) 565-6552 or 6553.
