James P. DeLorenzo
Retired Assistant Commissioner, New York State Education Department Office of Special Education Mr. DeLorenzo completed his undergraduate studies at The SAGE Colleges in Albany, NY. He began his teaching career at Chatham Central Schools as a special education teacher at the elementary level. Even as a novice teacher, he understood the benefits of the least restrictive environment for students with disabilities and started the first resource room at the elementary level at Chatham Central. Other early career work was in service to individuals with developmental disabilities and at the Office of Mental Health. Mr. DeLorenzo pursued his graduate studies through coursework at The SAGE Colleges and SUNY Albany where he earned a Master's degree and a post graduate certification in administration. His work at the NYS Education Department began in 1988 as an Associate in the Office of Special Education. His assent to leadership in the department included serving as Supervisor of the Eastern Regional Office and Statewide Director of Special Education, before being appointed Assistant Commissioner in 2013. Mr. DeLorenzo is known to be a strong leader who did not shy away from difficult issues. Throughout the education reform movement, Jim upheld the pursuit of higher standards for Students with disabilities, while being mindful of the need for supports and safety net options. As a result of his leadership, more students with disabilities gained access to the general education curriculum and graduated with Regents diplomas. Mr. DeLorenzo's deep understanding of students with disabilities was rooted in his early career experience as a classroom teacher, which served to inform his work in policy throughout his career. But he never failed to value the voice of students. One of his signature contributions to the department has been establishing the Youth Advisory Panel which is a comprised of youth who receive or have received special education services. The Youth Advisory Panel is an enduring part of Jim's legacy. He was also a strong advocate for the Special Act schools, private approved schools and preschool programs. Jim led policy changes that eliminated the use of aversive interventions, required the implementation of RTI, PBIS and least restrictive environment. He also worked hard to support parent centers and to enhance programs at preschools. During his career Mr. DeLorenzo traveled extensively to visit schools and interact with students and school personnel. His accessibility and approachability has been a mark of distinction in his service in the State Education Department.
