Responsive to this request, per clarification you are seeking special education teachers, paras, and student assistants – not including related service providers – in cost centers 3321, 3322, Bridges and Gateway, please find attached Human Resources data on employees in positions funded by category. Please note, there is no budget category for Gateway, a program within Homewood, and special education positions supporting Gateway are not necessarily found under the Homewood budget. Additional notes are found in the chart. As the first year using the current Human Resources system, FY16 data was pulled as of a date after its implementation.
