STAC, within the NYS Education Department's STAC and Medicaid Unit, is responsible for processing requests for Commissioner's approval for reimbursement. This includes reimbursement approvals for the costs of providing services to preschool students placed in special education programs at public and SED-approved private schools, BOCES, and at State-supported and State-operated schools for the Deaf and visually impaired. It also includes reimbursement approval for evaluations for preschool students. The STAC Unit works with both school districts and counties across the State in processing these approvals and providing reimbursement for preschool services and evaluations.
