It says to list all students- all that had comp ed or ALL
Helen Rist
10:33
Where can we put costs from mediated settlements
SAU 9 Administrator
11:07
how do we note future services we will be providing?
Helen Rist
11:08
What documentation is going to be asked for
Helen Rist
11:21
Yes I have a few- don’t go…
SAU 9 Administrator
11:26
Thank you
Esther Kennedy
12:16
Do we see any money coming our way after the 1st
Helen Rist
12:23
When to funds are given- what documentation will be needed? The directions says documentation will be needed
susanmerrell
12:30
Once money is allocated, will the DOE ask for further documentation (e.g time cards, progress
Esther Kennedy
12:35
The first of the year
Helen Rist
13:49
Would that be the WPN? does it have to be in the IEP?
Georgia Caron
14:18
If we provided ESY services without it having been recommended in the Iep, can we put those services in?
susanmerrell
14:37
To follow up Esther’s questions, has any thought been given to the costs districts experienced to comply with Executive Order 64 (or 48)? For example, transportation costs are substantial for inperson
Helen Rist
14:51
Why do you need % for students coming in, remote etc.? The questions at the top of the spreadsheet?
Georgia Caron
15:10
We provided them because the commissioner and governor told us to offer them.
Marcia Bagley
15:37
If we have to switch to remote for a period of time due to confirmed COVID, will we need to provide comp ed services for that time period (if students have been in person)?
Jessica Parsons
15:53
If a parent requests 1:1 services due to COVID concerns versus the team recommending - can this be included in the document
Esther Kennedy
16:07
I see the real financial problems to hit us in March!
Georgia Caron
16:31
You skipped my explanation. Please see above
Jessica Parsons
17:08
Thank you :)
Martha Miller
17:48
if a period of time in the future occurs where we go remote, after the 11/15 deadline for this submission, will that require another period for comp ed submission? Or is this ONLY for the period between March and June?
Esther Kennedy
18:30
Are many schools closing for December and the first part of January?
Martha Miller
19:40
If we go to remote in January for a period of time, and a student experiences regression, those won't be resolved thru comp ed?
Helen Rist
20:36
How will the value of the services be determined? Some of our costs are higher due to contracting the services
Jess Bickford
20:36
Esther, We have started talking about it. Sent a survey to staff to see who/how many are traveling and needing to quarantine
Christiane Allison
21:00
Rochester school board will see out proposal this evening for a vote.
macneile
21:29
Newmarket School Board meeting tonight and will hear the info for remote after vacation weeks
Nancy Michaud
21:34
We have sent a survey to families and staff also. The board is considering a temporary closure but has not made this decision yet.
Helen Rist
21:49
I think you may have missed my last question
Helen Rist
22:08
Thanks:)
Becky Forrestall
23:18
Not related question-the state board met this week to begin discussing the charter school rules revisions- I know there is a second meeting planned for spec ed discussion- will you be seeking input from anyone for this?
Becky Forrestall
23:28
I believe it is in November this meeting
Michelle Mason
23:32
Just to be clear, if we are using IDEA funds to compensate the providers of such service, and we receive Medicaid dollars, we cannot receive compensatory service dollars? Is that correct?
Michelle Mason
23:56
sorry and/or receive Medicaid dollars for the service......
Becky Forrestall
23:59
Thanks- I think it is tentatively scheduled for the 17th
Martha Miller
23:59
From March to June, not many districts provided onsite services, despite the availability and encouragement from the Commissioner for that to occur. Is the trend similar now, in regard to EO 64? or are districts tending to provide onsite services, when/if a district transitions to remote? Just trying to get a sense of other districts' direction.
Esther Kennedy
24:07
Thank you everyone, it seems we are looking at it. I hope the state can be pro-active with funding and help us out this spring.
Michelle Mason
24:39
Thank you.
Becky Forrestall
24:45
Thanks so much.
Jess Bickford
25:48
SAU 51 will more than likely continue with on-site services in the case of going remote, for those students that truly need it
Helen Rist
26:35
it all depends on staffing available
susanmerrell
26:54
It also depends on community spread
Brandy Pappas
28:10
Have a great rest of your week and weekend!
Mary Paradise
