School board officials in Passaic, N.J., are set to vote tonight on a plan to award contracts for special-education services for the next school year. The district last year made a controversial move to transfer students from a special-education agency that it has contracted with for 10 years. Parents became upset about the change, which they said would have disrupted the continuity of therapy and instruction and set the students back academically. The district allowed parents this past school year to retain the agency for students' services.
