Responsive to this request, please find attached a roster for a 30 hour training conducted by HCPSS in 2020. Two additional Department of Special Education staffers that are not captured here, as they attended a 30 hour training through IMSE at a different location other than HCPSS, were trained on behalf of the school system within the past year. Please note, this will not reflect additional staffers who may be trained through their own means/personal professional development.

Prior to the training above, HCPSS has not used the Orton-Gillingham instructional methodology by IMSE or CERI in the proceeding four years. For reference, the Board of Education recently approved a contract for further training, which can be found under Bids and Contracts from September 24, 2020: https://go.boarddocs.com/mabe/hcpssmd/Board.nsf/files/BTJJCX4C3833/$file/09%2024%202020%20Bids%20and%20Contracts%20BR.pdf (see PC-12).
