Just a reminder... NHSEIS will be down from 4:00 PM Friday, October 9th, 2020 through Tuesday, October 13th, 2020 at 8:00 AM for a NHSEIS software release of version 14-10. Thank you.
Brandy Pappas
06:21
Nope, that is everything, thank you
Stacey Eaton
06:48
Will the NHSEIS signature page be updated so placement is not signed for twice and will more than 10 accommodations be allowed?
Brandy Pappas
07:36
You can type as many as you need to. You will just need to indent, parenthesis, etc
Jennifer Pomykato
07:44
Brandy, would you know how many districts are accessing the parent signature option?
Melissa McKeon
08:12
A parent that was resistant to having their child wear a mask, made a turn around. We are working on a plan for the student to wear a mask, and this will allow the student to make more social interactions with peers!
Janet Reed
09:20
Any way to keep them from grouping into a paragraph rather than bullet?
kim disalvo
09:33
My case managers have been confused by the “Modifications” text on the accommodation modifications button that accesses that section of IEP
Brandy Pappas
09:59
Janet......unfortunately not.
Caroline Arakelian
10:14
Is there an update regarding the "comp ed funds"? Sorry if I missed it.
Jess Bickford
10:23
<br> creates a page break
Brandy Pappas
10:24
Kim, that has been changed
Janet Reed
10:30
Just visually confusing for parents
Jane Bergeron-Beaulieu
10:47
What role does the NHSEIS stakeholder group play in changes to NHSEIS? Are there minutes of meetings that can be shared regularly?
kim disalvo
11:05
Thanks Brandy
Brandy Pappas
11:36
you need to do it again, sorry
Melissa McKeon
12:12
Yes, please. It would be helpful to see the NHSEIS pages, your recommendations, and for us to share the struggles we are experiencing.
Helen Rist
13:14
Any info on how we should organize data needed to apply for the Comp. Ed funds?
Caroline Arakelian
13:26
Is there an update regarding the comp ed funds?
Marcia Bagley
13:49
Is the due date for that information back to you 11/15?
Jeanette Souther - Portsmouth
14:27
Are you just looking for a $ figure of approximate cost?
Jane Bergeron-Beaulieu
14:45
Will submission of comp ed data be optional or mandated?
Caroline Arakelian
14:51
How will the amount be determined for districts? Will it be through the grant system? Grant funds typically aren't approved for services already paid.
Jennifer Dolloff
15:39
How much money is dedicated to comp ed support?
Jennifer Pomykato
15:42
Has the Commissioner and Governor indicated the total amount available for comp ed? I know districts are struggling trying to cover all related COVID costs including comp ed.
Helen Rist
16:44
How is ‘impact on the district’ determined?
Marcia Bagley
16:46
So, is it accurate to say the more comp ed offered, the more $ a district may receive?
Michelle Mason
16:52
My apologies if I missed it. How are you collecting the data for the comp funds? Am I emailing you our number of students requiring comp. ed services? I apologize if you already said.
Jane Bergeron-Beaulieu
17:06
Could you speak to press release on on-line high school courses, CLEP exams and students with disabilities?
Jennifer Dolloff
17:42
This would include the cost of holding the comp ed meeting, correct?
Jeanette Souther - Portsmouth
18:26
are we including all services offered including those with no additional cost or only those that are causing extra expenses?
Helen Rist
19:03
Due process costs ??
Jennifer Pomykato
19:50
Thank you for attending the South Central region mtg. I hope others invite you too! :-)
Helen Rist
19:56
If a placement was the ‘cost’ from a mediated agreement that was the ‘comp ed’ offered?
Heather Barker
20:03
if we are giving the comp ed now, we can count those costs, right?
Mary Goodell
20:16
Yes, thank you for attending, Becky!
Heather Barker
20:25
great question Helen
Helen Rist
21:33
Correct:)
Helen Rist
22:02
Thank you!!
Susan Merrell
22:36
If comp ed was made up this summer- in addition to ESY- can that be reimbursed
Susan Merrell
22:49
It was not part of ESY
Jennifer Dolloff
23:19
Thank you Becky
Jennifer Pomykato
23:37
Thank you, Becky! Best wishes to all for a wonderful holiday weekend!!
dbandurski
23:42
Thank you!
elaine.dodge
23:50
so to be clear if we were proactive & offered double ESY do those costs count as comp ed?
pmacdonald
23:52

Helen Rist
23:52
You too!
Kathy Courtois
24:00
Thank you!
Mary Paradise
