Alphavista Services 17-18 contract.pdf
Summary: Alphavista 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 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. Alphavista is a company that will be utilized to provide Speech Services to ensure that all of our needed Speech Services are covered for the 2017-2018 school year. This fall we have had three unexpected departures of district SLP’s and need coverage at varies schools. Alphavista has found one SLP to assist in these openings. MDUSD Personnel Department and Special Education continues to recruit and hire district employees.
Funding: Special Education Department Program Code 1219 Speech / Audiology
Fiscal Impact The contracted amount between MDUSD and Alphavista is for $100,000 and the money is already budgeted for.
