C10 - SEDNET Support Services Contract, Darla Dumas 2019-2021

The Multiagency Network for Students with Emotional/Behavioral /disabilities (SEDNET) receives additional funding through Lutheran Social Services of Northeast Florida.  SEDNET services students and families in Clay, Duval and Nassau counties and the additional Lutheran Services funding has increased supports available. 

Gap Analysis

There is a need for additional staff, on a periodic basis, to support the expanded services available from the increased funding by Lutheran Social Services of Northeast Florida.  Contracting this to an individual experienced with these tasks allows the district to effectively meet the requirements of the SEDNET 4 IDEA Part B, SEDNET Part B Trust entitlement grants and the IDEA grants serving student with disabilities.

Previous Outcomes

The district has contracted with Darla Dumas since 2014.  Using a contract for hourly services is the most efficient and cost effective way to provide the necessary support

Expected Outcomes

Continued use of this hourly contract ensures that all necessary data reporting, records and data management, and scheduling of training occur.  This provides compliance with IDEA grants and Lutheran Social Services of Florida requirements.

Strategic Plan Goal

Strategy 3.2.  Develop systems and processes that focus on developing the whole child.


Approve contract for SEDNET Support Services.
