NEW YORK STATE COMPREHENSIVE SYSTEM OF PERSONNEL DEVELOPMENT (CSPD) GUIDANCE DOCUMENT AND CSPD PLAN TEMPLATE Revised 3/2002 NEW YORK STATE COMPREHENSIVE SYSTEM OF PERSONNEL DEVELOPMENT GUIDANCE DOCUMENT Introduction: The Comprehensive System of Personnel Development (CSPD) [8 NYCRR 200.2(h)] is a state required personnel development planning tool which aims to insure that personnel and stakeholders [CFR300.382 (j)] are adequately prepared to provide the supports needed for the education of students with disabilities [34 CFR 300.224], [8 NYCRR 200.2(b)(3)]. This plan is due annually to the New York State Education Department as a required component of the application to New York State for schools to receive flow- through funds. (Attachment 4.1 and 4.3 are related to the NYS Grant). Effective personnel development will assure that students with disabilities will be able to access the general education curriculum and the educational, social and personal experiences afforded to all students. Further, the CSPD aims to ensure that personnel are prepared to assist students in their transition to their social, economic, political and personal responsibilities as adult contributing members of their communities. Three primary student outcomes identified in federal and state goals are: 1. Students with Disabilities (SWD) will achieve high standards. 2. SWD will have access to the general education curriculum and the physical and social opportunities of the educational experience. 3. SWD will transition to integrated political, social, economic and personal responsibilities of adult life. To the greatest extent possible, this document has been aligned with best practices in comprehensive planning. Districts who choose to include the CSPD Plan in the Comprehensive District Education Plan (CDEP) or other comprehensive plans must address all the CSPD components within that plan. The chart that follows compares the CSPD components and the CDEP components with a brief descriptor of required information.

The range of the plan should be from three to five years. Developing a long range planning approach allows for long term planning and trend analysis. Complete the box marked DISTRICT with the name of the Local Education Agency, school district, BOCES, etc. (For Buffalo, New York City, Rochester, Syracuse, or Yonkers indicate the name of the building rather than district name). Upon completion of the plan, provide superintendent’s signature on the line indicated. Indicate the name, phone number and email of the contact person. Indicate the names and identify positions of team members who developed the CSPD Plan. Team members should include representation from general and special education administrators and teachers, related service providers, other support personnel, parents, and students with disabilities. The district may also want to include personnel from Institutions of Higher Education and other local agencies. The SETRC Professional Development Specialist must review the CSPD Plan utilizing the CSPD Plan Review Matrix in Section VII before the plan is sent to the State. The SETRC signature indicates that the plan includes the required components, and that the plan is based on the integration/achievement data of students with disabilities. In addition, the signature indicates that the LEA has engaged in a process that has promoted the quality indicators named in the Personnel Development Quality Indicators Matrix. Please note that SETRC Professional Development Specialists are available to facilitate the planning process. Formatting Directions for CSPD Template.
