NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
Youth adjudicated as juvenile delinquents may be placed with the Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS) by court order for a specified period of time. For the duration of the placement, OCFS is responsible for providing educational services in accordance with the regulations of the State Education Department (SED). When placement ends, many youth return to the community and seek enrollment in a school district. This hearing will examine the educational programming being provided to youth while in placement and their transition to school districts once the placement ends.
Persons wishing to present pertinent testimony to the Committees at the above hearing should complete and return the enclosed reply form as soon as possible. It is important that the reply form be fully completed and returned so that persons may be notified in the event of emergency postponement or cancellation.
Oral testimony will be limited to 10 minutes. In preparing the order of witnesses, the Committees will attempt to accommodate individual requests to speak at particular times in view of special circumstances. These requests should be made on the attached reply form or communicated to Committee staff as early as possible. In the absence of a request, witnesses will be scheduled in the order in which reply forms are postmarked.
Ten (10) copies of any prepared testimony should be submitted at the hearing registration desk.
In order to further publicize these hearings, please inform interested parties and organizations of the Committees' interest in hearing testimony from all sources.
In order to meet the needs of those who may have a disability, the New York State Senate and Assembly have made its facilities and services available to all individuals with disabilities.
