Summary: California Therapy is a non-public agency (NPA) that provides Speech and Language Pathology Services for school based services that are identified on Individual Education Plans (IEP's). When Mt. Diablo Unified School District (MDUSD) is not able to fill all open positions with district employees, the use of contract agencies is necessary to ensure that we are in compliance with state and federal laws that govern special education. California Therapy is a company that will be utilized to provide Speech Services to ensure that all of our needed speech services are covered for the 2019-2020 school year. The MDUSD Human Resources Department and Special Education Department continue to recruit and hire district employees.
Funding: Special Education Department Program Code 12190 Speech / Audiology
Fiscal Impact The contracted amount between MDUSD and California Therapy is for $100,000.00 and is included in the approved budget for the 2019-2020 school year.
Recommendation: Approve the master contract between Mt. Diablo Unified School District and California Therapy in the amount of $100,000.00 for Speech and Language Services.
