Summary:
Staff is requesting the creation of a new job description for Administrator of Equity and Disproportionality.

In July 2012, MDUSD was identified as Significantly Disproportionate for the over-identification of African American students for Emotional Disturbance. As such, MDUSD is responsible for creating a Coordinated Early Intervening Services (CEIS) Plan outlining how the district will address disproportionality and will re-allocate 15% of existing Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) funds for the 2012-2013 school year to support this effort. This Plan has been approved by CDE. The Plan includes the creation of a multidisciplinary team of approximately five (5) staff members to provide direct support to site level staff and also assist in the development of appropriate practices and strategies that can be implemented district wide. The Plan also states that the planning, training and recruitment will take place in the spring of 2013, with full implementation at targeted sites during the 2013-14 school year.

The job description was presented for information only at the April 22, 2013 Board meeting. It is now being brought forward for approval.
