Summary: Mt. Diablo Unified School District utilizes Independent Service Contractors to provide services established through the Individualized Education Plan (IEP) process. Speech Pathology Group (SPG) provides speech and language pathologists (SLP) for vacant SLP positions in the district, independent speech evaluations, and speech services to Non-Public Schools. The Personnel Services Department and Special Education have worked diligently to find district staff to cover these positions.

These efforts led to multiple applications, interviews and offers of employment with the district. During the 2013-2014 school year, efforts will continue to look for qualified district employees. The Special Education Department will work with Personnel Services to find ways to attract speech pathologists to MDUSD. The contract amount is not to exceed $1,136,800
