Quick Summary / Abstract:
Background: In an effort to provide high quality programs for our District's students with intensive needs, in the 2019/2020 school year, Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District (LVJUSD) piloted a partnership with Sierra Schools to provide Special Education program delivery on two of our campuses.
Status After a thorough evaluation of the program, we are recommending
continuation of our partnership with Sierra Schools to provide program delivery on two of our campuses. Sierra Schools will be responsible for providing the staffing, Individualized Education Programs (IEPs), instruction, interventions, response for
significant behavior needs, and academic instruction. Their staff will have the same requirements for credentials, specialized training, and background checks as our employees.
Fiscal Impact The service agreement amount is $1,053,600.00 for three programs.
This amount is cost neutral for running similar programs in our
District and represents a cost savings for our students participating
in similar programs outside LVJUSD. Programs at a non-public school
for 30 students would have a much higher cost and require
transportation outside of our community.
Superintendent's Recommendation: Approve the Sierra Schools Partnership and Service Agreement.
