01-22-2013 Regular School Board Meeting
Agenda Item #31


Title
Contracted Services Agreement between BPS and Monica Utt, MA CCC-A to provide professional Audiological Services to BPS Students

Discussion

BPS has two audiology allocations to serve the needs of all the schools in the district.  One allocation is filled with a BPS audiologist.  The other allocation is a privately contracted audiologist who works part time.  We have been unable to fill the second position with a BPS employee despite a national search.  The current privately contracted audiologist was given a contract only for first semester 2012-13 as the expectation was that BPS would be able to hire a full time employee by January 2013.  No qualified candidate, however, has been found.  Therefore, the privately contracted position is needed to continue to serve students second semester 2012-13.



Recommendation
Please approve the attached Contracted Services Agreement between BPS and Monica Utt, MA CCC-A, to provide professional Audiological Services to BPS students beginning January 25, 2013.
