Bronx preschool administrator Martha Vazquez was tasked with setting up individualized education programs, or IEPs, for special-education students, said the schools’ Special Commissioner of Investigation.
As part of that process, administrators and teachers are required to meet with parents to discuss the personalized curriculums.
After realizing that IEPs for two students were set to expire late last year, Vazquez forged their parents’signatures to make it look like the required sit-downs took place, the SCI said.
Upon seeing her name misspelled, one fuming parent confronted Vazquez, who claimed she was permitted to forge parental signatures if they participated in the meetings on the phone.
But the parent also denies taking part in a phone meeting.
The DOE said Vazquez, who could not be reached for comment, will be disciplined.
