Here are the Special Ed positions, as requested.by Ann Sutherland on 10/09/18
Dr. Sheffield responds to the request on the number of classroom teachers:
Sixty (60) % of the positions are classroom Teachers and Teacher Assistants’ positions, assigned mostly to self-contained Special Education classrooms on regular campuses across the district. The remaining forty (40) % of the positions are positions for specialized staff (Evaluators, therapists, vocational and behavioral specialists) who provide services directly to Special Education students as written in their Individualized Education Plans (IEPs). As you are well aware, many Special Education students need more than just Teachers and Teacher Assistants; they also need specialized personnel to meet their various needs.
Thanks to Dr. Sheffield for providing this iformation.
As of Sep 19, about 1/4 of the positions were unfillled.
