Do you have a date as to when we will hear back about our comp ed spreadsheet?

Hi Becky, the IEP signature page in NHSEIS no longer allows you to ask for parent signature to the IEP only. It forces parents to sign for both IEP and placement. Can this be fixed?

We heard from a private provider that the DOE expectation is that para support is to be placed in supplemental services.
Melissa Gray
12:30
Ok, thank you
Brandy Pappas
12:31
Currently there are 9 responses. This will be updated shortly
Melissa McKeon

How will that impact special education aid?
Rhett Darak

What if a para I needed for more than one of the drop down reasons?

will Medicaid still recognize it if it’s in supplemental services?
Susan Merrell
14:50
Does the Supplemental Supports allow you to indicate the amount of time the para is with the child
Stacey Eaton

Will support for communication be added to supplementary services in NHSEIS since that is a reason a student may need para support?
Melissa McKeon
15:03
yes-supplemental services
Brandy Pappas

Yes, it is listed in Support for Personnel

Would be nice in supplemental services if there was a choice for individual or group for paras. I know we can do custom.
Caroline Arakelian
16:22
Sorry if I missed it - was there a memo regarding para in supplemental support?
Brandy Pappas
16:43
The only section tha tdoes not have session length, etc is Aids
Melissa McKeon
17:28
thank you
kim disalvo

Would also be nice to be able to run an advanced search to see which students have para in supplemental services
Susan Merrell
18:42
To clarify Brandy’s comment in chat….We need session length for paras for Medicaid and Special Education Aid.
Caroline Arakelian
19:04
Will this be a requirement in the future?
Georgia Caron’s iPhone
19:48
so as IEPs come due we can make the change then?

Session length and frequency does show up for para support when you put it in supplementary service when the IEP is in draft form, however once you finalize the IEP; those times do not appear in the finalized IEP. Moving forward; will this change?
Catherine Woods
20:09
The private provider we heard from felt putting para support in supplemental services was a requirement in orde for them to "pass" their compliance review.
kim disalvo
20:52
I noticed that too
Catherine Woods
21:11
It may have bbeen their own anxiety about it.
Brandy Pappas
21:16
Yes, noted
