Summary: Stepping Stones 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. Stepping Stones / Alpha Vista 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 Human Resources and Special Education departments continue to recruit and hire district employees.
Funding: Special Education Department Program Code 12190 Speech / Audiology
Fiscal Impact The contracted amount between MDUSD and Stepping Stones is for $400,000 and the money is already in the approved budget for the 2019-2020 School Year.
Recommendation: Approve the Master Contract Between Mt. Diablo Unified School District and Stepping Stones for speech and language pathologist services for the 2019-2020 school year.
