MOU (Memorandum of Understanding) Signed with District re:Special Education Caseloads

The UTSC and SCUSD signed an MOU regarding the on-going problem of Special Education Caseloads exceeding the contractual and education code limit of 28. The MOU does two things. First, it codifies a procedure for verifying caseload numbers on a monthly basis at each site and establishes a procedure for addressing overages. Second, it establishes a Special Education Task Force consisting of certificated and administrative personnel whose charge is to give recommendations to the Special Education Director for alleviating caseload overages at particular sites as well as to provide input on any programmatic changes to special education programs.
