Technical Assistance Center on Disproportionality (TACD)

Effective June 30, 2019, the New York State Technical Assistance Center on Disproportionality (TAC-D) will no longer be operated by New York University through a contract with the New York State Education Department (NYSED).

The network will be called the OSE Educational Partnership and will increase district capacity using an intensive team approach to technical assistance and professional development that is implemented with consistency across New York State. Additional information regarding this initiative including a brochure, question and answer document and webinar can be accessed here:
