The DoSE is required by New York State law to provide you with copies of ALL of the reports, evaluations, records and any other document BEFORE the CSE meeting begins. What this means specifically is that prior to their Chairperson calling the CSE meeting to order you are entitled to receive a copy of every document that may be referenced in the meeting. The DoSE hates this law and will do everything in their power to convince you that this is not the case. Excuses will be things like, "the law does not say that" (it does), "we have advice from counsel that we do not have to provide the documents before the meeting starts" or that right before the meeting is sufficient notice, "this is the way we always do it", "we will go through them at the meeting anyway", etc. Do not believe it.
