Summary: Speech Pathology Group (SPG) is a non-public agency (NPA) that provides Speech and Language Pathology and Physical 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. Speech Pathology Group (SPG) is a company that is utilized to provide Speech and Physical Therapy Services to ensure that all of our needed Speech and Physical Therapy Services are covered for the 2020.2021 school year. MDUSD Human Resources Department and Special Education continues to recruit and hire district employees.
Funding: Program 12190 DIS: Speech & Audiology $300,000; Program 12170 DIS: PT/APE/OT $200,000.00; Program 16610 Non-Public Agencies $30,000.00
Fiscal Impact The requested contract amount between MDUSD and Speech Pathology Groups is $530,000 . This amount it already included in the approved budget for the 2020.2021 school year.
Recommendation: Move to approve the contract between Mt. Diablo Unified School District and Speech Pathology Group for the 2020.2021 School Year.
