File Attachment:
Summary: Staff is requesting an increase in the purchase order for the contract between Mt. Diablo Unified School District (MDUSD) and Maxim Healthcare Services, Non Public Agency (NPA) for the 2012-2013 school year. The Board approved the Master Contract of Maxim Healthcare Services last August 27, 2012 for $169,000.00 for special education services for the school year 2012-2013. The NPA contract needs to be increased by $212,216.29 bringing the Special Education portion of the contract to a total of $381,216.29.
Since the purchase order request was initiated in August, additional students were added to the caseload while other students’ medical needs increased. Currently, this contract covers the nursing needs for eight students who are receiving services at different schools, three of which are county schools. The health conditions and needs of these students include: Muscular Dystrophy, Seizures, Mitochondrial Defect and Tube Feedings.
In addition, two students transferred from in district placements to county placements. The new placements require nurses to ride the bus with the students, increasing the hours of service. At District sites, two students moved from medical settings to classroom setting with nursing support. These changes greatly exceeded the anticipated need for the year.
Student Services also utilizes Maxim to serve students on 504 plans. This contract is separate from their $508,324.00 approved budget.
Funding: General Purpose/Special Education
Program Code 3094=$212,216.29
Fiscal Impact The total increase requested is $212,216.29. The expenses have already been budgeted in the 2012-2013 budget. No additional funds are being requested at this time.
Recommendation: Approve increase as presented.
