Special Education Staffing
  • Special Education Teachers are typically employed
    by the school just as any other teacher
  • We provide oversight with a Director and Asst.
    Director of Special Education
  • We contract for OT and PT Services in most cases
  • Some schools employ their own Speech Therapist
  • If a school doesnt have enough need or cannot
    find a therapist we contract this service

9
Roles and Responsibilities
  • Special Education Teacher/Therapist write the
    individual education plans
  • Directors over see and assist with difficult
    meetings
  • Directors are responsible for oversight and
    assist in the recruitment and hiring process for
    all special education staff
  • Principals and directors together conduct
    evaluations and ongoing training for special
    education staff

10
Negotiations
  • Attempt to negotiate for the whole group of
    schools in our particular region if possible
  • Negotiations are driven by number of
    students/service hours, campus locations, travel
    time, etc.
  • We attempt to use one service provider when
    possible

11
Challenges
  • Qualified and Certified Staff
  • Staff Availability
  • High Demand Positions
  • Not enough therapists
  • Economics

12
Conclusion
  • Imagine Schools is a non-profit operator of
    Charter Schools
  • Imagine Attempts to employ the staff rather than
    contract services
  • Imagine offers the full realm of services as
    outlined by IDEA
  • Imagine works to share personnel to be more cost
    effective
