Dear Parents and Guardians,

The City School District of New Rochelle (CSDNR) contracted with Public Consulting Group (PCG) to
conduct a review of the district’s special education programming and services. PCG is seeking input
from parents/guardians of students currently receiving special education services in CSDNR through
a brief electronic survey. This includes parents of students who have IEPs who previously attended a
CSDNR school but currently attend an out of district school through either an agreement with the
school district or parental preference.

The survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete and will be available until Monday, February 20, 2023.

The survey can be accessed at the following links:

Department of Special and Alternative Education at mobryan@nredlearn.org.
