Summary:
Bright Paths is a non-public agency (NPA) that provides Physical and Occupational Therapy Services for school based services that are identified on Individual Education Plans (IEP's). When the 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 law that govern special education. Bright Paths is a company that will be utilized to provide Physical and Occupational Therapists to ensure that all of our needed Physical and Occupational Therapy Services are covered for the 2018-2019 school year. MDUSD Personnel Department and Special Education continues to recruit and hire district employees.
