Agenda Item #29


Title
Approval of Four (4) Contracted Services Agreements to Support the Family Liaison Project for the 2012-2013 School Year

Discussion

The Office of Exceptional Student Education Program Support provides continuing support to families of students with disabilities.  These funds are allocated specifically for parent projects through the State Department of Education under the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA), Part B Entitlement.  Family Liaisons provide numerous informational community presentations.  The Project supports parents in IEP meetings and in navigating the system to positively address parental concerns.

The hourly rate has been increased for 2012-13 to assist in the associated costs of travel and communication expenses for the Family Liaison Project.  There are three Liaisons and one clerical staff supporting the project.



Recommendation

Approve four (4) Contracted Services Agreements to support the Family Liaison Project that provides liaison services to families of students with disabilities.
