The Central New York Special Education Task Force has an online mail list to share information about upcoming events and to allow  Executive Council members to share information with other Task Force participants . In an effort to avoid overwhelming your inbox, use of the mail list is limited to notifications of task force events and cannot be used for other purposes.  To join the Central New York email list, subscribe here and choose “Central NY.SpecialEd.Task.Force” on the dropdown menu.  You will then receive an email request to confirm your subscription by following the link provided in the email.  It's as easy as that!

You may also subscribe to any or all of the other regional special ed task force lists, but you will need to do so one at a time.
