Becky,
Jennifer Pomykato
08:51
Thank you for spreading the good news, Becky! Folks appreciate your support :-)

If teams determined to make a decision at a later time, can we list anticipated services (as long as we clearly identify them as such)
Kenneth Duesing
09:57
For the Comp Ed documentation
Mary Paradise
09:59
What about an additional hire of a school psych to get caught up on evals? It is not in an IEP but I did it to keep going with evaluations and to stay timely. Same for upfront services to avoid regression over the summer?

If a school district must switch to a long term fully remote platform due to increasing Covid cases this winter are we still under Executive Order #64--must offer in-person services to all special ed students?
Kenneth Duesing
13:14
The team wanted to gather more data based on how the student performed when back in the school, hence the delay in making a determination for the need for Comp Ed.

Thank you

Same for upfront services to avoid regression over the summer? It was done to avoid regression prior to the mandate.
Kenneth Duesing
13:59
Thank you
Jennifer Pomykato
14:22
To clarify, if the team recommended comp ed may the district still submit for comp ed if recommended for ESY 2021?
Mary Paradise
14:58
Thanks, if it is in a WPN as we did not amend IEPs and parent signed agreement in a spec ed proposal form to the WPN are we okay?
Mary Paradise
16:01
Got it! Thanks.
Catherine Plourde
16:05
We may need to anticipate if we are in a state of disagreement that may result in mediation or due process. I think this is where we have questions.
Rhett Darak
16:07
Will the information submitted by districts on these comps ed forms be used for any other purpose by the DOE beside determining amount of funds?
Jennifer Pomykato
17:30
At some point, will districts report that there is no comp ed necessary?
Mary Paradise
17:36
Thanks that is helpful.
Martha Miller
18:20
Can comp ed cover a service that wasn't originally in an IEP...but because of Remote from March to June, now that service is found necessary? Or, can only previous services, in the original IEP get added?
Jennifer Pomykato
20:06
Has the district had any formal complaints?
Jennifer Pomykato
20:12
I meant the DOE!
Jennifer Pomykato
21:06
Thank you Becky - good news!
Mary Paradise
21:35
You would not be able to utilize costs you put in the IDEA or is there a way to do that
Mary Paradise
21:57
Sorry, slow typing.
Helen Rist
22:09
YEs
Mary Paradise
22:21
Yes, if it was in the grant can it be submitted. Adjusted after?
Helen Rist
22:31
IDEA funded costs cannot be put in for comp ed
Jennifer Pomykato
22:52
and same for Medicaid to Schools too?
Mary Paradise
22:55
I will pay it back...
Mary Paradise
22:59
Hahah
Mary Paradise
23:46
Could we submit the portion not covered in Medicaid then for a service?
Jeanette S - Portsmouth
24:01
I thought we were told to put all the comp ed offered not just those with an additional cost to the district?
Jennifer Pomykato
24:35
Any update on NH’s IDEA/Preschool Grants status?
Jennifer Pomykato
25:09
Hopefully most dollars allocated/spent? ;)
Jennifer Pomykato
26:09
Thank you that is a good reminder for folks
Timothy Koumrian
26:36
Would we have heard already if one of those current complaints was a student in our district?
Timothy Koumrian
27:07

Mary Paradise
