An EBD consultant will talk with administrators, EBD teachers and the Leadership Team on April 12.

Dan Collett reported on the Day Treatment program. He is attempting to evaluate the program’s effectiveness by looking at such factors as attendance, transition, academic progress and behavioral changes. He is also reviewing IEP’s to evaluate the needs for the summer. The group requested information on the various models of day treatment programs for the next meeting.

Personnel and staffing needs were reviewed. It is unclear at this time as to the exact number of students that will be in some of the low incident programs. This information will be reviewed next month. Next month’s meeting is scheduled for March 14, at 9 am.
