Not sure who to ask?



The Pennsylvania Bureau of Special Education Advisors interpret federal and state laws and regulations as applicable to the Bureau and answers questions regarding special education plans. Schedule a meeting with a BSE Advisor if you would like to talk about special education related issues such as:

  • Evaluation/reevaluation

  • Requirements for schools’ Health and Safety Plans

  • Suspension practices for students who receive special education services

  • Instruction in the Home and Homebound Instruction

  • ConsultLine’s relationship to BSE



The Pennsylvania Special Education Advisory Panel (SEAP) collectively considers systemic issues and acts as an overall advisory body to the Bureau of Special Education and Bureau of Early Intervention Services and Family Supports. Schedule a meeting with a SEAP member if you would like to:

  • Report a general area of concern.

  • Report systemic unmet educational needs of students with disabilities.

Please note: This is a forum for systemic issues, not individual issues. For individual issues, please visit Ask the BSE.
