U-46 seeks consultant to provide data analysis

By Seth Hancock
  School District U-46 is asking for $169,500 to hire a consultant for nine months to do data analysis and hold monthly meetings.
  The item was presented at the Oct. 5 meeting, held virtually due to COVID-19 regulations, and will be voted on at the Monday, Oct. 19 meeting. The proposal is with Virtuoso Education Consulting, LLC and will be paid for by the nation’s taxpayers through grant funds if approved.
  “This relates to the disproportionality of our over identification of black students as being emotionally disturbed,” said Superintendent Tony Sanders.
  The proposal states: “The district needs assistance from an expert in disproportionality. The goal is for staff to understand and address academic and behavioral challenges prior to consideration for special education services. Schools will strategically implement processes around restorative practices, positive academic and behavior intervention support, cultural responsivity, and other aids to increase attendance, decrease behavioral referrals, increase academic data, and empower students to truly fulfill their potential.”
  Although not yet approved, the district already has started the work according to the proposal. It states the work started on Oct. 6 and will run through June 30, 2021.
  The monthly meetings “shall be competed virtually,” the proposal states, and other costs will be incurred.
  “Other costs or resources (including administrative costs) that are not part of this item, but are needed in order to complete the project,” the proposal states.
