Title
Contracted Services Agreement with Bureau of Education and Research for Professional Development Day

Discussion

The Bureau of Education and Research of Washington State will provide a specifically designed training program to 150 District and school-based Speech-Language Pathologists to be held on Professional Development Day in September 2010.  Through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act 2009 (ARRA), funds have been budgeted to provide an opportunity that would not otherwise be available to better serve the District's students with disabilities.  The title and focus of this training is "Practical Therapy Techniques for Challenging Articulation Cases."  Expenses include instructors' fees, consulting, associated travel, and the reproduction and shipment of resource handbooks and training materials.



Recommendation

Approve the Contracted Services Agreement with the Bureau of Education and Research to provide training to Speech-Language Pathologists to be held on Professional Development Day in September 2010.
