A new DCERT is required for students attending school year private placements. DCERTs need to be updated annually or if a student’s private school placement is changed to another private school. Please be sure to send us the DCERT before the student begins each program. For more information, please click the DCERT Guide NYSED.
For annual reviews, CSE chairpersons are advised to place a blank DCERT form, (see MAG’s Microsoft Word version) into the packets of students who are considered for approved private school placement for the first time or if they are recommended to continue.
