SUBJECT

Special Education Regional Program Joint Board of Control

RATIONALE

As was presented at the March 2018, Board meeting, ACPS and Covington City Schools have been consulting with VDOE to plan to move forward in a partnership for a Regional Tuition Reimbursement Program to access additional funding for our students with special needs. In a meeting Friday, May 11 with Paul Raskopf from VDOE, it was discussed that there would need to be a joint Board of Control for this regional partnership. The plan is that the Superintendents from both Alleghany and Covington would be on this joint Board of Control. If additional divisions come into the partnership, then they would add a member to the Board.

 

This is for your information as we move forward with this. We hope to be able to complete an application in the near future. I will present to the Board again at the June 2018 meeting to seek your approval to move forward with the Regional Tuition Reimbursement partnership and the Joint Board of Control.
