It Appears Chapter 683 Summer Pay Will Continue For District 75
There has been no decision whether NYS will have a summer school program since neither the State or City government will have funds to pay for the programs. However, for Special Education programs in District 75, it appears that the Chapter 683 program will be continued this summer, be it remote learning or actual classroom instruction.
Chapter 683 is a federally funded program that pays Special Education schools to provide year-round instruction. In New York City it is District 75 schools who provide instruction for the most severely disabled students in the New York City Public Schools.
Chapter 683 pays eligible educators 17.5% of their annual salary and it's pensionable. The program usually starts before Independence Day (July 4th) and ends no later than August 15th. Educators get two absence days and if the educator does not use them, they go into the educator's Cumulative Absence Reserve (CAR) .
Note: Some community advocates want the DOE to pass all students, regardless if they participate in remote learning. You can read it Here.
