Mt. Diablo school board to vote on mental health funding Tuesday night

Here is Theresa Harrington's Contra Costa Times article regarding tonight's Board of Education Meeting:

The Mt. Diablo school board on Tuesday expects to allocate nearly $1 million to cover costs for the residential treatment of severely emotionally disturbed students to take the place of state AB 3632 funding vetoed by former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Trustees also expect to pass a resolution calling on Gov. Jerry Brown and the Legislature to reinstate the mental health funding through June.

The meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m. in the district office at 1936 Carlotta Drive in Concord. Information is available by calling 925-682-8000 ext. 4010 or by visiting http://esbpublic.mdusd.k12.ca.us. Click on Jan. 11.

Also during the meeting, the board expects to approve the addition of six special education assistant positions and to review several other special education issues, including the identification and evaluation of those who receive services.
