and Cost Analysis
At Futures, we realize how important it is for school officials to understand how scarce dollars are spent in their school buildings. Not only do school leaders need to know how dollars are spent, they must ensure that dollars are spent effectively with maximum accountability.
Futures understands both systemic and specific issues facing school districts when trying to deliver the complex policy and programming of full service special education programs. Sometimes an objective assessment of current programming is the key to producing sustainable improvement.
The number of special education students in schools will continue to rise. To meet the needs of this growing number of students and offer programs within the confines of federal, state, and local funding, Futures offers strategic management services designed to guide meaningful and effective program delivery.
Clinical services, or related services, represents programs that consume an inordinate amount of time and energy. These specialized services, mandated by law through the IEP process, require a tremendous amount of human and fiscal capital.
